Forever Jasmine

by Carmen Ruggero

A space of perfect stillness;
a molecule of time
in which dreams of tomorrow
vanish in the depth of night.

A seamless interval of wonder;
our eyes meet,
and we long to unravel
the moment we first touched.

We can’t seem to understand:
We have chosen different paths,
and in the stillness of our minds,
forever lives that summer night.

We try to unravel the twisted yarn
while you face the moon, and I the sun,
yet our souls will always stir
when jasmine trails in the dark.
