The earth surrenders
to the powers of the sun
as stardust drifts down
through the skies of mind
while the winds shift course
to bring the force of spring
into the very air we breathe

and energy arises all around
joining in the amplitude
of sun and moon in harmony
orbits linked, the earth in sync
with particles and waves
of oceans that reach out
to touch the shore

Can we ask for more than this?
this bliss of just one moment
in a day that lives forever
in memory of heart and soul
except perchance, the warmth
of just one other body
drawing near enough to know
the nuance and the disposition
of fluency inherent
in a loving touch . . .
