thinking about one single impression's prompt for this week, my mind kept wandering to this summer's phone conversations D. & i shared when we were pressed for time & time zones with an ocean & a continent between us. as i traveled more & more eastward, i kept glancing over my shoulder in his direction, wondering, imagining, remembering, anticipating. with text messages at 50 cents (USD) a pop & phone calls 3-6X that per minute, we had to fit a lot of love in a very short space! & it was sweet!
the previous summer just after travel apart, i penned a poem with thoughts of the time & space between us. i found myself looking westward over the sea, imagining us sharing the sun or the moon in that moment...
between the places
where sea touches sky
a breath escapes
