SJP

There are moments that take us by surprise.  Changes us even, enhances who we are.  What a great blessing it is to be awakened to such an event or such a presence that it literally takes your breath away.

where I might channel this

desire, I am without focus —

this love.  Then you came fiercely

on that rainy afternoon.  It caught

me by surprise, unprepared,

and there you were — this violet

beauty swaddled in white; you

looked so small compared to

the smile in my heart, so wide

I had to cry(could I love you

more even if you weren’t mine?)

and now you’re taller, I start

to wonder where all this love

regenerates, springs forth

from each embrace
