i gaze at her
laying in the grass
with her skirt strings trailing
like lazy kite tails swaying in the haze
does she realize her influence?
i smile at her
shining in the sun
as i spiral around her gravity
like icy satellites captivated by the fire
does she realize her power?
she winks at me
as sixty seconds whirl
and another sixty minutes swirl
and another twenty-four hours take flight
does she realize at all?
