I followed you into the distances
of the afternoon, a bronze butterfly
in my path alighting on the tan trunk
of a tree, blowing in the summer
wind like a leaf. Up ahead you
stopped and waited for me on
Dandelion Hill. It was then you
wrapped your light around me like
a tiny star, and I blessed you with
the love rising up inside of me.
