The owl came last night
it’s never been before

the sliver of the
waning moon
hung right
above my door

the moss had grown
beneath the rock
you once stood on

the gurgling creek
still moved along
the course it always knew

the dragonfly
in the sky

the sun would set
the sun would rise

the traffic weaved
the buildings stood
the people moved

the ripple of you
gone back into
the universe
the particle and
the wave

I sipped my coffee
closed my eyes
inhaled my memories
and found you in eternity.
