how lucky i am

how lucky I am
to be with you.

are such things
mere good fortune?

our happiness
arises like
the dawning light.

our closeness
is the rootedness
of things.

the how & why
we love is
as consequential
as the trajectory
of stars

& our hearts are
as magisterial as
the sun.

we watch
the forgetful clouds
& the rolling seasons

we are children
of forever
& our
celestial togetherness
