I never saw light that way again

The Two Times I Loved You Most In A Car
Dorothea Grossman

It was your idea
to park and watch the elephants
swaying among the trees
like royalty
at that make-believe safari
near Laguna.
I didn’t know anything that big
could be so quiet.

And once, you stopped
on a dark desert road,
to show me the stars
climbing over each other
like insects;
like an orchestra
thrashing its way
through time itself.
I never saw light that way

It is heart-warming in a strange way that someone, somewhere is having a beautiful time and writing about it - for someone else to hope.
