Orbits – #Tanka

I search for your scent
Have you sought me as I you?
Is our tie still strong?
Sometimes I have to wonder
If it is all in my mind

This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.  The key words today were “Bond” and “Seek”.  Following her suggestion, I didn’t use the words, I used only synonyms.

Title – I thought of “bond” as in atoms joining to make molecules or crystals.  This happens in the electrons and often depends on the orbits.  Orbits, like planets.  Orbits like the space that we inhabit, our worlds and what we do and see.  Sometimes people are in different orbits, and no amount of seeking will bring them together, yet sometimes to orbits coincide, the bond will happen if they want it to or not.
