Shared Summer Leaves (for Peggy)

Shared Summer Leaves
(for Peggy)
 .
Plot keeps us moving
conflicts, obstacles
from concept to theme.
Show of our qualities,
characteristic strategies
how people change
dramatically, comedically,
through relationship or revelation
or how we resolutely refuse
to change despite ardent
catalysts.
Sitting in your kitchen
drinking wine and sharing plotlines
leading to the lives we share
here in safe eternity
I feel your joys, moments of doubt,
your poignant tragedies and resilient reclamations
Your brilliant smile, contagious laugh,
ebullient embrace carry me beyond
enduring sorrows.
A fallen sparrow nurtured,
a flower coaxed to glory,
a simple girlhood story spanning wars,
historic empathies.  Cuttings
cultured from days before language
continue chains
of synchronicity, plotlines leading me
to find
our brief exchange
Strands of interactive dna
move us forward into more complete
meeting.
