as promised, i’ll shut up now

Is there anything more lovely…

…than a small child running barefoot and free…

…through the grass on a perfect summer’s evening?

 

As good as it gets, this side of paradise.

It’s easy to love
through a cold spring
when the poles
of the willows
turn green
pollen falls like
a yellow curtain
and the scent of
Paper Whites
clots
the air

but to love for a lifetime
takes talent

you have to be willing to move through
life
together
the way the long
grasses move
in a field
when you careen
blindly toward
the other
side

 – from Mary Mackey, “The Kama Sutra of Kindness: Position Number 3”
