Full Circles

Coming back to wholeness

by Ronan McCormick on Flickr

In the absence of you,
I find myself becoming
complete, a crescent waxing
on its way to full and gleaming
like the perfectly round pearl
I thought I’d find
as a child cracking clams
under the pier at the lake,
not knowing the harm
in forcing open
what is tightly shut, searching
for something to adore
