In the firefly dusk

on a tree-crowned road

I memorized the moment

our footfalls side by side

the stirring of the wind

the press of your arm against my skin

the potent undertow of love


Our time is rare and fleeting

but the fragments we’ve piece together

in the summer season

are deep and wide

I want

so much more


stay forever


But winter and other loves

come between us

I hear commitment’s distant call

and know I will follow


I loosen my fingers from yours

slowly, carefully

and let you go



To this road, to this firefly dusk

I will stray

from time to time

the warmth of your voice in my mind

Here I’ll wrap sweet longing

like a cloak of velvet night

around me

and sense you close

but not quite
