“When the lips are silent,
the heart has a hundred tongues.”

– Rumi


These still moments roll

between you and I, charged

with blue voltage that feeds.

We are not filling the spaces

with devices and parlor tricks.


You open the spaces, smiling.


I span the spaces with fluttering –

wings carry our love tree to tree.
