~ for Thich Nhat Hanh and for Marie

Sans the exclamation marks
These cool blue waters of metta
Soothe its hungry red flame

Trembling allowed
Along with sweaty palms
There is time enough

And world enough
And mountain lakes
And years to come

Barefoot and hammock kisses
Sans the exclamation marks
Cooling Welcome kisses

Slow unhurried kisses
Compost and tree houses
And mountain streams

Nothing is too good
to be true

The gifts of snail and of turtle
Sans the exclamation marks
Leaving traces and trails

Traces and trails
Walking pace

And sitting pace
Everything welcome
At the Table

Everyone joined in the Circle
Even with the exclamation marks
The fire and the water joined
bi, partnered, available
