My moments
are what I offer
wrapped in these words
a snake sliding through its skin
rain sailing through the wind
sun diamonds floating on water
still tea in a green cup

Seek me out
in these places
Seeds lodged in the core of the fruit
your savoring them, their only purpose
The constant nows
that make and break me
The sky wraps her arms around a cloud
dancing through the great room
Every performance, opening night

This is my spectator sport
fish swimming through my lenses
the perfect rhythm of their applauding tailfins
or the sun caressing the moon
leaking their collective shine on night
My legs hold me up
snapped to attention
