Recycled

Seeing them together

caused my pause

to write a gift for you

on scraps found. My pen

pulled my hand along

(it is braver than I).

It knows how to lay

my heart wide open,

like a prairie to the sky

nowhere to hide

expansive and still,

miles from adequate

for what I wish to give.

  1. I liked to image of a poem that scrambled to be written, even just on scraps of paper. Love is the poet’s purview, and you seem comfortable within its grasp.
