Face in a storm

I saw your face tonight

Dark billowing clouds
outlining tousled hair
Hidden lightning

betraying passion in your eyes
Distant thunder

echoing your murmurs.

Subdued strength

reflecting your presence.

You asked
if I will miss you
I answered
"Of course I will."

But I didn't want you to know

how much I did.

You blew into my life
twirling me like a cottonwood leaf.
You left me

with raindrops on my face
like the laconic storm

rolling by overhead.

I saw your face tonight
and remembered
how much
I miss you.
