I saw the photo of her wedding
on the internet
she smiling, hanging her hands around his neck
he laughing, and looking toward the camera.
Their world can only be happy.
I remember an endless lake
waiting for the fireworks
a sailboat stiffly jolting
on tiny invisible waves.
She turned to me in the dying of the light
and showed me a flower
and it was beautiful
and so gentle between her fingers.
I looked about, there were no flowers growing near us
Where did you find that? I asked.
She smiled that same smile
full of glinting sunlight and gentle promise
and would not tell me.
