a conversation of the heart

Responding to each other like a perfectly matched echo, this writing is authored by two people falling in love.


you and I rooted in winter

our mettle reflects our hearts

coming rains and warmth 

will feed our souls

I’m ready to reap with you

New life, a new start

It bristles at the wind

Whipping steadily, circling

At times it hopes to rescind

It’s arrival to the air

And then the sun on its face

It stretches and arches

Toward an open, quiet space

To free its leaves

Fan out its petals

To shine toward the sky

And solidly it settles

Amidst the wind,

the ice, the cold

It stands steadfast

Clear and bold

Old Man in Sorrow – VanGogh
