Just inside of sleep

 

Just inside of sleep

still conscious of the sheets, snow

falling and moonlight.

 

A stranger crosses

my grandmother’s shaded lawn

fifty years ago.

 

This is the alchemy.

Reincarnation and

revelation.  Eyes open

 

in the dark. My love

breathing beside me. Chill breeze

from the cracked open window.
