entering sacred time

for eric lam & mary duckett

there is the
time of clocks
& the time of
the universe

& the time
that is
no time

the two of you
vow to love
without end
at the beginning
of an eternity

your smiles &
your hearts
are already made
of love

the footprints
you make in the
world
point in the
direction of
loving

you hug
together like strands
of dna

& your children
will be made
of purest happiness
