In Nature

    For Sarah & Andrew

When I think about your love,
I see it in the warm colors of your photos:

yellows bursting daylight onto trees;
reds parading across a single leaf, beyond a rocky beach;
oranges sweetening sun-soaked faces.

In art school I learned that
the way your heads tip toward each other
makes a shape that is both familiar and unrecognizable,
like the leaps we take–
over puddles and cliffs,
in mind and in nature–
impossible to map
in motion.

When I think about your love,
it tastes like

a bowl-full of noodles,
tomatoes mined from the land;
a fresh, golden peach;

It’s the way they say you’ll get it when you’re older,
and you do.
