By request. Thanks, everyone.
The sun leaves just the sky behind,
a watery arch over the prairie,
and my feet cling to the ground
unwilling to let loose of this day
for its beauty and possibility
and loss. There is always loss.
In the moment of light remaining
just a pause to ask my jaw to
soften; to be glad of the sadness
that marks this day worthy of memory,
giving dimension to silhouettes
and music to the moments that grow
special in hindsight. Moments that
lift my stride again, fixed to a
simple wealth of earth and sky.
