(Almost) Eighteen

The years have worn us,
like sea glass,

two broken pieces
tossed together
against stone and wave—

and, here we are now,
smoother, more luminous,

than we were
for the tumbling.

On Lake Chelan at Dusk

Drop another pebble in,

out to bluer, deeper water,

where the moon drops,
golden-soft, like a whisper
                        I want

to hear again
and again
and again.
