Drift

Continents drift.
Clouds drift.
Wood drifts on water.
Daffodils drift on swirling pools, tossed by your hand from the dock, yellow eyes turning.

We drift.

Chasms open, hearts open and close.
Each grinding leaves dust; the closing not quite complete.

Eyes once hard, soften; lips once dry, moisten; hands once empty, fill.
Desires become dreams; dreams memories.

Distance is not so wide as it seems.

What drifts returns.
