you are perpetual
water flowing from an endless spring.
You have leaped past the finite
and you are too bright to look at.
In my mind
you are a jeweled bee
trapped in a globe of golden amber
wings frozen in exquisite poise.
But you have not stood still.
you have sped ahead of me
laughing in the wind from the mountains.
I keep wanting to beg you
to wait and take me with you
but you are already gone
and I can’t run fast enough
to catch up with your evolution.
