In this moment

In this moment

singing pines stroke
a gray-blue sky

bare branches extend
to swelling tips of twigs

sunlight polishes
grass to green luster

the clock
measures these moments

(infinity unmeasured)
and in this moment

I want for birds that have not
come this morning,

for birds that have not
sung their evening song,

for candlelight—
the glass of wine, the loaf of bread

for the conjugation of touch
coming back to present tense…

for sunlight and rain
to ease the long drought.

I want and again I want.
for birds that have not come.

Valentine 2012

Beneath the bustle
of gathering clouds
imagine us together
meandering along a forest path
and the stones where we walk
shine in our presence
and the growing green of grass
perfumes the air.
Imagine these words
rippling out
into persimmon glow
in the evening sky
like love floating
above the parting day.
