Come yet again

You, my lover of leaving, moonchild, woman of rainbow,
it doesn’t matter, like a window, closed can be opened.

Moon sickle waxing, rain showers, sound of your footfalls;
the wind in the morning through mousseline of curtains.

You, my lover of landings, sunlady, woman of mornings.
it doesn’t matter, those partings, if you come yet again.

  1. This is absolutely stunning, Bjorn! 💜 I love “the wind in the morning through mousseline of curtains.” 😊

  3. What an excellent opening. Also the part about the curtains.

    The rainbow reference makes me think this could be about a parent trying to reconcile with a gay child — one with whom there had been a rift.

  4. I love how you’ve brought together night and day, leaving and returning. Parting is indeed a little less painful when we know our love will come back. Beautifully written, Björn.

  5. I love this piece, Bjorn. Every word is a poetic choice and the whole resonates with art, emotion and the skill of penmanship not often seen.

  6. I love the idea of the coming and going being like a window that can close and open.

  7. “It doesn’t matter” can be such a powerful mantra, especially when directed toward the force (or people) that would undo us.

    All is not lost. She’s destined to be back!
