How did this happen?

My heart started beating again

the day you touched it so warmly

with understanding

silent and knowing like the moon

watching us fools try to capture Destiny.

The darkness that once bruised my entire skin

now just reaches for the light.

I saw when you looked at me

that morning.

I don’t understand

how such few words

could hold our hearts

so close, on a palm of colors we can’t

see. Vibrating to sounds we can’t hear.

Singing as our future gently unfolds

like an unfurling leaf reaching for rain

or a sail opening itself to the wind

and sea.
