|| you happened ||

you happened
and i could
sniff the suppressed ache
of fallow land
that has sprung up
with spring
and a musky sky
and flapping flight

your words
released in me
a transparent fall
against thirst ...

you happened to me
and i knew
how flowers get their perfume
and tenderness
how sunshine colors them
how the heart
expands into a tree
where the butterfly
gets fetching colors
why the honey bees
build a honey-comb
hanging on a branch

seeing myself
in your eyes
i know
why the river flows
on and on
like time ...
