Love cycles


Waters Like Eyelids

Let us come to the well
again. Water falls from
darkness of the sky and flows
underground to feed
aquifer we tap into for drink
we need. Love continues
the path from air to earth
to us and so forth. Lace
moves through lawn,
thinning out the carrots,
part of the garden we planeted
this spring. They grow large
from the water, sun, earth mix
they have flourished under.
Her hands strong, firm
and soft gently brushes
dirt off and hands the sweet
orange vegetable to the waiting
hands of our son. Hold
this moment, I think.
But soon love moves
past us in it cycle
of return.
