Easy as Gravity

Easy as Gravity February 24, 2020

While every love we know is unique
and has its own history, every chance
to care traces back to the same
enduring love that lives below
all names.

The way the branches on this
towering oak trace back to its
enduring trunk.

By loving you thoroughly,
I love everyone completely.
By kissing one thing, we
kiss everything.

Now I love the fog that holds
the flickering light. It seems
to say, “You don’t have
to try so hard.” 

 

A Question to Walk With: Describe a very personal experience that opened to the common experience of all human beings. How do you think this happened?

This excerpt is from my book of poems in progress, Returning to Where I’ve Never Been.
