Three Intimations

i.

 

An open door of sky

if you believe

 

in metaphorical rapture—

palest purple

 

incisions of white jetstream

along the horizon

 

so blue you almost can’t believe

gesture isn’t spilled.

 

 

ii.

 

Eucalyptical light

settles in a valley sutra.

 

Don’t’ blink away the tears,

don’t mistake whispers for wind.

 

 

iii.

 

Rain-heavy leaves

can’t imagine the drought

 

a season in advance.

Run your fingers over them

 

the ones you love

the ones you love.
