Topsham, Maine


Few are the moments
that just

when the sky shimmers
through velvet air,

when the heart of the universe
and the field sways,

when the sun
is your soul,
and always was,

its warmth on closed eyelids –
the deep sleep
you’ve been missing
all your long, short life,

and a sigh
is a single white cloud,
small and sweet.
