just this, dear friend,
from my heart to yours.
the words didn’t find me this week
but I wanted to paint you joy
and to share the way
the last of the zinnias hold the sun
soft and close
showing us how
to soak it in
for the cold, gray days to come
and just look at all this gold
~see how rich we are?
we’re braver than we know.
October has pounded on me hard
so I’m few of words
but richer in love
and braver than before.
“Love is vivid. I never wanted the pale version.
Love is full strength. I never wanted the diluted version.
I never shied away from love’s hugeness
but I had no idea that love could be as reliable as the sun.”
