a sliver of moon
in the clear night sky
but not
the faintest notion
you were leaving

Oh wow...it's like having my feet knocked out from under me, Paul...The beginning is a happy sigh and then suddenly...heartbreak! So beautifully done. Love it.

Paul - wow - this poem is amazing. Just amazing. Excellently composed. An amazing economy of words (particularly on the last line). Just all round WOW WOW.

Keep up the GREAT work.
