From the same river

His mountain moves very slowly;
he notices changes in light
and imagines it’s their dancing
that’s caused the shift

He tells her all the things
she never knew she needed
to hear but wanted to believe-
and flowers bloomed in snow

They were drawn from the same
river with unquiet waters
and it took autumn trees
to tear open their story anew.
