Shaded

gaugin
blossoming tulips,
the river surface glowing,
weed smoke lingering,

women in dresses,
buds being born on green stems,
smiles returning,

chairs outside cafés,
endless blue above the trees,
birds tweeting love songs,

yet lonely I walk,
beneath my own dreary cloud,
contemplating you,

as spring emerges
and I can’t evade this shade
where I crave your love.
