'Gossamer Wings'

This painting inspired me to write its 'companion' poem.

'Gossamer Wings'
Your pre-dawn arrival
is instant;
and I miss it.
With your gossamer wings
barely stirring,
you slip between
the new dew
and the grass
before I get to you.
And,
I am again reminded
that the distance
between the seeing
and the understanding
can make one wonder
if they ever saw at all.
