She sat on the grass

beneath the summer sun


looking at you

as if for the first time


 and as she looked at you

you looked beyond her


at the distant sky

and how the clouds


resembled a woman’s bust

and how humorous it was


when an airplane

went right through


on its way to some far off land

and as she took your hand


she said things about love

and how she felt


and did you feel the same

and you taking the image


of the airplane

and woman’s entered bust


said oh yes of course

trying not to let it show


on your 14 year old face

how funny that image seemed


and not realizing how deeper

and more loving she was


back then beneath

that summer sky


with you thinking

of that day and her


and her later death

and you hearing


in the silence

of the drawn out dawn


her soft words

in her prayerful breath.
