you came into my life like rain

gentle- not a tidal wave-

no sandstorm reshaped these planes-

but you have reformed the earth,

made the ground bear grasses-

water, such a simple thing

to the earth, aching for it

the ground, cracked and dry, despairing

you were water

like oxygen to a child

I breathed you and simply lived.
