No Longer


No Longer

Moonflowers unfurl in fullness
with pale faces as I lay my cheek
where once your name was spoken.

The earth has swallowed your stone
till I can no longer read your name -
there are only memories and dew.

No hummingbirds trumpet petaled praises,
no honeybees drink - they have flown,
with wings too fast to be seen.
