we float

upon the ether

our words the connection

between us.


i read your goodbye,

so many keystrokes, loosened

whispered, touching points of land

jutting from the slipstream.

an arm

a thought

smile.


we move along

as we must,

currents chiding us into submission.

i will miss you.

      I've always believed goodbye is not forever, always in the heart. But missed, as "we move along"...beautifully worded. Very nice.

      Hello Audrey - Here at this forum so many have moved along. Some wishing us a small goodbye. Others just a whisper as their door closed. I don't know how you can publish these fine pieces daily.

      Nice and appealing goodbye, touching to the heart. I am sure this goodbye is for this moment only. Tomorrow is waiting there for you.

      Voted up and beautiful.

      Sometimes, it is just that, a fleeting moment for whatever reason, selfish or selfless. Who is to decide?
