Chasm

Widens this distance,
the space between,
the bridge across it
stretching and narrow.
Above, the sky,
cold and empty,
missing the sun,
missing the light;
beneath, the world,
exposed and vulnerable,
missing the rain,
missing the storm.
Passes between them
a gentle breeze,
warm and light,
full of hope;
too quickly it passes,
turning and drifting
out to the sea,
over the abyss,
leaving only a
sweetened memory
where earth and sky
once embraced.
