Poem: Our Waves

When we were young and careless, you found me

casting speckled stones into the river

just to taste its wake. Then you walked with me

until the starlight painted us silver.

Your strong arms around my waist always pull

me from the ocean’s tempestuous surge,

lay me on soft sand under stars and full

moonlight, to feel all our spaces converge

You breathe in my hopes, and out all my fears

your brown eyes know my secrets long before

I entrust them to my tongue, tasting years

In sweet grapes, peppered rice, and melty s’mores.

We place our hearts into each other’s palms

Long after these waves wash our entwined limbs.
