“Folded Into The River” (Rumi)

Your face is the light in here

that makes my arms full of gentleness. The beginning of a monthlong holiday, the disc of the full moon, the shade of your hair, these draw me in. I dive into the deep pool of a mountain river, folded into union, as the split-second when the bat meets the ball

and there is one cry between us.
