Gene Rhea Tucker


Like a gentle tear rolling

Like a simple sigh in the heat

Like a secret whisper of faded love

            the crushing of leaves

            the breaking of dawn

These things


Like the sound of a smile

Like the start of a song

Like the roar of a candle being lit

            a gift unwrapped

            a ball flying during play

These things

You are there
