INFINITY & BEYOND
I count the stars and place them in my hand, my heart.
— Zeina Hashem Beck, “Ghazal: Samira Tawfiq Sings A Love Poem”
Near the edge of the rooftop pool,
distance falls away, infinity moves closer.
Still as a heron on a river bank
waiting for telltale movement,
the woman looks up, and away –
her gaze grazing unseen stars, planets.
is coming our way.
Infinity moves closer.
