The space between now

and then

Opens

Like a window

Into the moment,

Inviting the presence of

Mary, the poet,

Ann, the peacemaker,

And so many others,

To leave traces

Of their thoughts

In these threads.

 

Currents of time and air

Flow

Into this veil of mist

and memory;

This waterfall of light

On cottonwood leaves

Beside my studio.

 

400 hours made visible.

Like beach patterns

Of ocean on sand.
