Hope embraced

Cast a light

Upon the backdrop of a moonless night

 In her bed

When she’s not there

The smell of sage in  the cool mountain air

Alone, together

A brief eclipse

Like Planets in orbit or passing ships

If only, she would only….

I like to tell myself

Let her icons come alive, jump off the shelf

To guide her, to show her, removing the doubt

A tree of wishes, inside and out
