I tried on my dress and remembered
The sound of music,
The feel of bare feet on dusty ground,
The smell of water in the wind off the lake
and the feeling of your arms around my waist.
I remembered grasshoppers caught in crinoline
Tears on cheeks
and the squeak of bow on strings.
I remembered the sun on flags,
and water purifying feet
I remember walking toward as one
and running back as two.
