I wore my purple and blue jacket this morning;
the one we saw at the open-air market,
that drew me like a lode stone; the one from Nepal.
I wish you could have been here, seen my happiness,
my surprise when the box arrived. I opened it
and wore the hand-made garment immediately.
Closing my eyes, wrapping my fingers about my
elbows, memories of our time together rushed
in with all the passionate desire I felt then,
with promises of its return each time I wear
the colorful patches of our love from Nepal.
