Time adorned you on this ordinary day
a few strands of silver
set off that blue
sweater on this day
at Redfish,when you smiled across the table
at the man who took this picture
who knew you better than your own mother.
when you never
had all you wanted
when the meal was finished, and it ran off before you felt
with what your life became.
In each moment, like this one through time
you never looked any lovelier.
Too bad. You would have loved all you saw
even when your eyes were tearing
and your heart was broken
by life's constant waves of grief.
