Just Right

I was right
from the beginning:
you are mine.

I was right
that we are meant:
it feels true.

And when we talk
in sacred spaces:
you feel right.

Quarter Moon

1

Briefly she was gone, only to rise
half-shy against the inky night,
casting her shine upon his nape,
one glimmer at a time, his true shape.

2

She's here each night and always,
though tonight she is half-gone.
And here she'll stay in solace
be she full or crescent, be she none.

3

His voice reminds her of home, tender
behind eyes closed and all darkness.
Sweeter than music, slow to surrender,
he is warm substance she's grown fonder.

We Are Atom III

1

New love
is like an atom: it contains
the entire universe.

We are a seed;
we are the forest.

We are a shell;
we are the ocean.

We are a star;
we are the night.

2

New love
is like an atom: its circles
are ever expanding.

We dare not ask;
it answers all questions.

We dare not attach;
it belongs to everyone.

We dare not possess;
it is given freely.

3

New love
is like an atom: it defies
the laws of nature.

It does not revenge;
it is forgiving.

It does not react;
it is yielding.

It does not cause;
it is forever.

4

New love
is like an atom: it cuts through
all boundaries.

It is lawless;
we arrive at but one action.

It is limitless;
our treasures bear no horizon.

It is fearless;
we act with all abandon.

5

New love
is like an atom: it is this singular
eternity.

It is this moment
and this moment.

It is all tomorrows
and all yesterdays.

It is this instant;
it is this always.
