you are

[to all the people I love.]

you are the light
dancing prisms on the wall,
the green shade beneath
soft maple branches.
you are the deep drum
signaling victory in battle
and the mumble of a coffee shop
on a Tuesday evening.
you are cold sheets against
smooth legs,
the warm breeze of the morning
that brushes away the chill.
you are the smell of leaves
when the air is crisp,
the familiar scent
of a friend’s clothing.
you are the spice of something
hidden deep within cinnamon
and cool water when it’s
most needed.
