Polished -Poem by Ali Grimshaw

We are shaped by what we give
with effort or easily
generous, open handed
in the full light of day.

We are shaped again by what
we are tenative in receiving 
or open armed in our willingness 
believing ourselves worthy.

How my shape has changed
by the years of you
rubbing against each other
burnishing us both 
to copper shine.
