Turning the Page – A Poem by Ann Christine Tabaka

Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine Submit Poem

Submitted by Ann Christine Tabaka

Open Meadow.
Closed heart.
Which way to turn from here?

To run free and wild.
To live without a care.

You left so many years ago.
I lost count of the time.

The emptiness that fills me now
is in the shape of you.

Open spaces call to me,
to leave abandon behind.

The sun my only lover.
The wind my constant friend.

Soft green grass beneath my feet.
A journey with no end.
