it comes in, measured beats
in sync with mystic rhythms
how it proceeds
how it laughs at our
belief of control, of
mastery of things
while no more we
understand than a moment

linking eyes
vocal explosions of joy
all focus folds
into singular embrace
speaking all
manner of tongues
“how’ve you been”
“I’ve missed you”
from afar
heart warming humanity
