Dragonfly Wings

Such a small space between you and me
You could take my breath with just an inhale
I exhale to give you more
Heat vibrates between us
As summer on dunes in distant lands
Held are we in this oasis
Yet we are not one, you and I
More we are formed river stones cut by centuries of fresh water
Rushing to the sea
We lay, oddly shaped and perfectly suited to our purposes
I hold you in my hand, smooth and cool
I rest, too, fully within your palm, unhurried by time or place
A thousand days could pass here
And I would think not more than a moment
Truly but the beat of dragonfly wings
