love’s renewal

              although every new moment of this new love 
will be 
               shadowed by my past fear 
               of the invisible vaporisation visited
upon me 
              yet knowing that what else is there to do 
              to draw back and revert to that desert emptiness 
              when every oasis metamorphosed into a fading mirage 
yet I am 
             a living witness to the power 
             of a single raindrop 
             that though it briefly 
swept past me 
             it’s vapour defied desolation 
                      and brought forth this love.
