"that day"

"that day"

you flip to a fresh page
and describe that moment
with that newfound friend
and those fluttering feelings inside:

that day, the sky was in full-gloom
until the sun fumbled through
the clouds a few hours before
dipping into the dark of the earth

you were lost in that city
at 3 o’clock that morning
‘cause those sparks lit a flame
too stubborn to die with day

you felt her focus flicker
from your eyes to your lips
you spoke softly, leaned in
and peeked while you kissed

in that park on that rock
when those sprinklers went off
and that silken stream flowed
coolly beneath your feet

you skipped across an emerald sea
as fearless as two thrown river stones
and then surrendered your doubts
to a late summer’s night dream

you write about stars fading
into a brightening blue morning
and delicately tuck in that moment
like a child on the cusp of slumber.
