shadowed backdrop

I sit down, relating to the beauty
found

upon the flowers in the nearby park
a connection deep

and stark

perfuse
with fragrances misting through the air
alighting

with the greatest of care
and devotion, making me grin

as elation comes up

and I witness the sun hiding in the shadowed backdrop

Walking

Photo by Davide Sibilio on Unsplash

Along the water’s edge
Just like an old friend
You and I,

At once apart
And, yet,
All the while let’s
Not depart,

As I take a step
And the wave rolls in
Sparking and lovely
And, then

You shine forth

Upon my face, and
I glance up into
A manginficance

Not a one can replace

With a memory, no
Only with the experience
This moment brings
As we move toward each other,

And, are together, clouds
Pass over, and cover you
From view, yet
Only for an instance

And, then your back
Within my purview

Sand is soft and damp
Under foot
Small granules of life
Which bear

A resemblance of

My gratitude for your
Insistence, and

This moment, which lasts
Across all existence

You shine forth again,
A miracle in the distance
Of a collisioned aftermath

Not of destruction,
Only of pure love and devotion
For you and I

Are actually not
Separated by distance

So let’s hold hands again,
And continue our journey
Upon the sands
Within the hour glass

Of time, walking side by side
Are you and I
