Maybe once
we could fold into each other
and find another place
beyond what we are,
where there would be no measure
only melting.

I am one thought in time.
The sea does not feel
my toes dangling,
the sun moves always
into another daybreak,
the turning world
holds me to her
for reasons of her own.

That precious footprint
cannot sustain itself,
consumed by minutes
it is gone.

Maybe once
we could find another way
of knowing,
glimpse beyond
one separate thought
to that other place
where there would be not measure
only melting.
