Ride Share Model

 Ride Share Model

Nearing autumn, yet spring is
springing with seeds reaching
for the light, tendrils stretching,
buds blossom, harvest into

aloof, learned way to stay
safe when everyone wants
something, I, too, do wish

She is looking into,
sees into me, notably,
and I am not afraid
to be seen so clearly.
I actually feel felt;
gladly, cared for.

She wished it.
We shook on it.

The table is set and we
eat these fleeting moments.
