Forty-two sits waiting on a sundeck.
Over her the sky melts into dawn.
Rustling leaves remind her of the silence
That soon will turn to tessellated talk.
Yellow flowers flood the longhaired meadow.

The sundeck has no mooring in the moment.
Wind and tide will bear it towards the sunrise,
On which again, again the day is born.
