Tiny granite gravel garners
arranged and shaped by larger hands
from the hours and minutes
Our conversations linger above
like a cloud
accumulating memories as
rain drops and I chase the
In new places, on islands,
in another part of the world
I sit under the same tree.
At this point it is beyond
40 days and 40 nights,
how many lifetimes,
Like a leopard stalking
hungrily, I’ve faced you,
and sought your incarnation
in every one.
Yet each moment with you
is like a million moments
that are first moments;
and I am covered in morning light,
a soft gaze, your tenderness.
I shall return for more.
