January 9, 2012

Follow the winding ribbon of road curling around the winter trees

And stop to take in the expanse of the star-specked sky.

The moon gently cups your face with midnight,

And the eyes that dance in the sun now glimmer in this blue

While the kindness of your smile etches my heart.

Dreams never capture these moments,

They are too fleeting.

But last night I saw the universe in your face.
