What carries us through

A poem.

About these ads

We lie on the driveway, side by side,
    old sheet pulled up
  to our shoulders to fend off the mosquitoes,  
 and look  
 for shooting stars against the August sky.

(I see one – there! Did you see it?)  

Too hot to touch, I feel for your hand,
 hold a single finger,  
 love you,  
 bigger than the sky,  
 for taking me outside
 to see.

Editor's note: The Perseid meteor shower will peak the night of Aug. 12.
