Missing Me

by Alanna

I miss you

she said

Do you miss you too?

Yes, I miss me

I said

I miss those walks we had

at the orchard’s edge

philosophical conversation

keeping pace with our breath

passing the lonely llama

hoping for an apple

the kestrel on the wire

the lambs frolicking by the red barn

the crows flying overhead

the fields now plowed


huffing up that hill

sighing at the view

of woodland and vineyard

yes, I miss it all

The call ends

I turn my chair, roll it up to the computer

and resume typing
