outward days


how lovely these times
that I spend with you
casting out vanity
into deeper blue

and of these moments
O my arable heart
drawn in heartfelt smile
inner peace a part

sow into my deepest
and most awaiting soul
countenance anew
and angst now a lull.

and eyes turned away
to meet your gaze
working on my inner man
for my outward days.
