eyes and arms and heart wide open

(the vigilance of stars)




i think we might just
have something here, lost
in all this blue. do you
remember the way the
earth swelled when you
smiled? the wild heart
abandon of that breeze?
i’ll ask the trees to stay;
they may connect the dots
…..for us,
give Orion back his belt
………and a tie to match.

these aspens have their
own alarms, some violent
charms with which to
sway the eve. Be
-lieve me when i say
we’re wide awake and
………for the dream.
