Meet the Moment
Here is the day I found for you
out here in dappled meadows
where the clouds chase their shadows
across the waving grass
and the flowers dance away
from the touch of languid insects.
We came here to meet the moment
and search for newer days that flow
around us as we lie together
watching our lives float by
just like those clouds that hold themselves
up out and beyond our reach
as we shade our eyes against the sun
to turn towards each other
and our nakedness once again.
