Waving Hello (Draft 1)

Maybe a wave…

I imagined many times I’d
call her across the scenario, though

it didn’t seem real as I
wandered in the meadow

but when I looked up
from the grass I contemplated
I saw her beck,
and when I came closer
she kissed me

The gesture seemed clear, and
we were so close that
there was no need to call out,
only a need to call in.
