Rare Moments.jpg
We are watching them make
their way towards the up-turned life
guard stand

waiting from the bench
with a Rent-a-John behind us

a door swings
and we know just were we are -
laughter from the beach
echoes familiar tones emptying
itself in our laps

Comfortable chatter rests on the
surreality of a sliced orange moon
resting against our horizon

rising in the summer's breeze,
bridging us to the open skies
from our nave

No longer strangers, patience for their
dance on the open beach

the hint of flesh behind the white linen
of his shirt
arrests now from the corner of my eye

widening at each button

A stolen kiss,
a rare moment and he motions me to clear
my vision,
time-keeper, the hour-glass of the ascending moon

becomes this mirror
