Gently into night

I didn’t know their love story
had been born
between mountains and rivers

I was tracking a kestrel
through a vast and open sky

I couldn’t have guessed
grace would find me
on my quiet road alone

I felt tremors
as from a great and gentle quake

It wasn’t until I slowed
to a hush in my mind
that I could open my heart for them

There is peace
in being taken gently into night
