Into An Unending Now


While gazing at the water

absorbed in my own thoughts,

a voice calls my name, clear

and lovely as a thousand chimes

each caressed by a gentle breeze,

a whisper reaching a crescendo.


My eyes turn to the green field’s

edge, where begins the grove,

Her smile like sunlight, she

calls again. Her eyes dancing

and shining upon my approach.


Everything once lost restored,

every care converted into joy.

In our embrace every moment

past, every moment to come

melts into an unending now.
