To Be As Good Coming As Going
To be as good coming as going 

Blown bubbles with no sorrow:  such brevity has no time for pain.
We glance away 
from rainbows without fearing a disappearing 

having learned long and past
out of sight is still a place.

You and I, our rhymes so close,
    attempting sameness but not quite,
we hear the song of fallen feathers
and the ache in dreams of flight.
