It’s Time

There is that
moment
when the stars
align
speaking directly
without pretense
informing you
through the mist
that indeed
the universe is in
agreement with
your clarity
and neither requires
negotiation or subtle requests
only the parting
of lips
to make sounds
resembling the words
“It’s time”
