Bright Blue


Diamonds may fall
Black petals rise
A white owl fly
into your view and between your eyes

Red-eyed doves watch, from a window-sill
pecking at grains and drinking water from basins

Mango trees unfold in mere minutes
Planets turn so slowly you see the rotation

But none of it can compare to our heartbeats
missing their motion
stopping & starting again to function

When we complement each other
even fanatics and extremists cease to matter
The wings of bright blue butterflies glisten
Something more than breeze makes the green grass rustle

Love will out-last all these deaths and sorrows
out-live and cast out
every human frailty

in its pull and untiring volition
in its kisses and uniting vision.
