without a name

without a name

I greet first light
without a name,
without naming
slip my arm
around your waist
hug you,
snug into warmth,
breath and balm—
one whole

a finger snap of time
distinguishing begins,
splits this from that
hawk from sky
deer from field
me from you,
grateful scent remains

I’m writing a poem a day. These are drafts—not final versions.
