37 Days Adrift

It’s well known that he who returns never left…
(an excerpt from the Pablo Neruda poem Goodbyes)

After 37 days of self-imposed exile, I sit down at my desk in the day’s fading light to write these few lines,
taking pleasure in knowing that my quiet return has not disturbed your slumber.
I’ve been drifting on a river full of memories and dreams while casting off  regrets and wonder,
If my absence went unnoticed, why is it that I care?
