Another Anniversary Poem

That night you first unfurled me
Like molten light flowing
Enrobing us both
In richness
In fluidity
In wonder

I knew you suddenly whole
Like the earth knows rain
Enlivening us both
By sense
By language
By heart

You laid me open then
Like the peony opens to the sun
Taking hold of us both
With will
With strength
With mind

I have never closed since then
Like a lotus carved in jade
Echoing back to us both
From past
From future
From timelessness.
