You are missed




The wind is naughty today again
feebly teasing sometimes
uncouthly caressing the chime
And it is responding too
not in rapturous pleasure
but in painful sighs
They feel your absence
and miss you perhaps.
Or do I?

  1. Both/and, yes? We used to call how literature shows the weather reflecting human emotions "the pathetic Fallacy"--but maybe nature responds first and that gets in our bones? I like how you move from a naughty teasing to the pain.

  3. We do perceive the world around us with what we feel. I liked how well you have captured your current emotion by describing the nature around you.

  10. Brilliant lines, and I agree about the pathetic fallacy, as well as the personification in:
    'The wind is naughty today again
    feebly teasing sometimes
    uncouthly caressing the chime'.
    I love the final lines:
    'They feel your absence
    and miss you perhaps.
    Or do I?'

  12. Love and longing are expressed in our minds by our observance of everything around us now that our loved one is not with us. It is as though we need to talk to and hear the words of things still with us for assurance that all will be well. What beautiful words you have written.
