listen dear one

listen dear one… until the waves
are quiet against the stoney shore
when words are wrapped tightly among them
silent sentinels, guarding waiting…
moments pass, like wind through the trees
each not drawn against
the bowing branches
earlier, i watched a bird explode into the air
while another swam silently below
the serene face of the lake
and gold flashed in the shallows
as the sun set
as the first stars leap and play
against the blackening sky
know that all this i see
with you sitting here beside me
