Tangency

IMG_0546.jpg

I sit under the wide sky this morning,
a dome of dim flame and early blue,
watching silhouettes of coffee plants
blacken against the rising orange disk.

In Indiana, a boy, in the same faith,
watches the sun sink into the black
contours of a corn field.

For an instant, our worlds are tangent
and only the Sun knows of our meeting.
