Not once
Even then
Did i waiver
As our time slipped
Rabbit footed
Over polished surface
Gathering sheen
As a girl bent in task
Seems
To sefuse 
sun
Not once
Even then
Capturing direction of air
In prayer
Not once
Even then
Our palms set
against the other
Refusing
To slip
Not once 
In sickness or regain
As night stitched with drowsy stars
Will always remain 
Not once
Loosening the bond
Hung on moon light
Casting glow
Always

  1. Outstanding as usual. You, my dear, are a peach, If there were 2 of you, you would be a pear.
    My translators love that line. One of them says, “I would be a banana.” When asked why she says simply, “because I like bananas.”

  2. I love this very much, Candice. There’s a tender beauty in the imagery, and I detect a hint of sadness, perhaps in the repeating line “not once”. And that’s exquisitely clever when one thinks about it.
    Have been thinking of you, my friend. 🌸πŸ₯€
