Waking

how calm she breathes
waking so right
from experience
avoiding
tunnels and photographs
heading
to eternity and home
transcending
above the nest
fir
hemlock above
there
i see a complete ending
at
every moment
within her
both perfect and round
so
stretching to this curve
i touch in open stream
like all moments combined
within her
to complete myself
as a floating bough.
