Today: “UNBEARABLE TENDERNESS”
And so it goes….
On my daily roll around the neighborhood with Olivia in tow
I saw a leaf.
The first squeak of that almost unbearable tender and new green
Which reaches out to meet us
After a deep winter.
The count-on-able appearance
When there seemed only deep chill before.
Yesterday, my limbs were numb and unresponsive.
Today I literally feel the incremental return of lively blood
And my mood is not at the effect of anything or anyone;
It is mine alone
And fueled by possibility
When only yesterday there was none to be had.
I took the fuse that lit that tiny and tenderest of green leaf
And plugged it into my own heart.
See… here it is right there in my eyes
Should you care to look there.
I can share it with you.
