Someday, Perfectly

Someday the sun will shine just once,
perfectly, in a perfect glade,
at the perfect time of day.

Someday a man will hold a woman
perfectly, in a perfect embrace,
and yet not bind her.

Someday a woman will hold a man,
perfectly, in a perfect embrace,
with no need to close her eyes.

Someday the stars will rain down light
perfectly, on a perfect sea,
and be seen only by turtles.
