On Time

Suddenly I cracked my ceramic shell
and hatched like a Chinese mosaic
I was ancient and timeless
precious and carefree
Clouds are best contemplated
lying on the ground
Flying in the sky
I laughed, the grass warm beneath my back
with hope inside me, leaves in my hair
How many years since you were a girl
lying on the grass
superfluous poetry books in your hand
observing their miracle in the sky
Never forget that necessary moment
when you soaked up the wet leaves of grass
What a joke -
you made a wish
ancient and timeless
precious and carefree
I drifted off
and dreamed of the years to come
Waking from my dream under this tree
to say, this is how we become complete
we are on time
Whoever you are, this is for you
