Eternity Enough


there’s little time

but not much else


things to do

and things done —

but what?


what lives from this day unto the next

what memories of my thoughts survive even the hour


these night winds foreshadowing an approaching storm


that storm, too

will pass into history

unremembered by the plants

by the earth

by even the water fallen and remerged with the water of before


a little bump

a wrinkle in a tablecloth

a tapestry of all the times we have and have had


but being here with you

is finer, is greater than the memory of any moment

all moments

being in the now

with you

is eternity enough
