Watching a leaf fall–
permanence becomes absence–
void remains unfilled.

Awoke to Jack’s voice
saying, “Clara.” A presence
I felt. Curious.

Dreamt about my kids —
they were little and all there.
Then I woke up.

Thinking of my Jack
and the devastation that
he left behind him.

Jack’s friend Isabel
has come to visit. We love
her English accent.

Jack makes a movie.
Bowls of ice cream on the porch —

Today I miss home.
It’s tax day and Jack’s birthday —
I only miss one.
