this sacred place where leaves are falling. She's here now,
settling near my heart. Pan flute notes float mid-air then settle on the path.
Her warmth, a warm summer day; her voice,
a picnic of words; her presence, a gathering of doves.
She ascends now: swirling spokesperson is gone. I love her
comings, her goings. Her bicycle carries her many miles.
