for Liz


beaming in all directions

attracting us all


waking even the sleepiest

among us


accommodating each wandering soul

serving up her own brand of solace


a knowing feeds her

she sips it in…delighting in the sweetness


her smile is replicated

we see it everywhere


like dominoes rising to meet me

a counter experience


a constant rising

unique to this woman


a love with no end
















HA !


pieces of light

particles of air

heavy with ocean salt

my skin drinks it in


sand holds

universes not

known to us,

vast beyond our comprehension


each wave

rolls in

more unknown

existence within existence


we think

that we’re only skin & bones  Ha!

what we are is

all of the above
