The Stream

You are something I am learning to remember,

my body pressed up against yours in a stream,

water gliding over our bare bodies. In your arms,

I am looking up into the canopy of hemlock

and white pine, the whinny of the woodpecker

nearby. With you, there is room to grow into

something that I am learning to remember,

the current washing over us into the unknown.
