a delightful interaction of short duration and infrequent occurrence

this year again     we approach second nature

delicate fabric         veils elaborately lift           drop

rosemary     mangoes     white wine

mutual mirrors filter         second guess   our lifetime growing up

no other person can place me                  so outside

hurt   me     you   all the same     all the more

generous for once         for now

unlike                  an old backlit photograph        we’re translucent

like a Turner I gazed at         yesterday

angel light                    glows from our center

orbits align                                      slip apart
