In my poetry,
I try to articulate Truth
at the edges of what words can touch.
Limited by my words,
I acknowledge my humility.
My life has acquainted me intimately
a companion of curiosity and delight.
has softened me,
is not about making myself small,
not about debasing myself,
but about approaching everything and everyone
with a readiness to see goodness
and be surprised.
gives me a lightness of step,
not a heaviness of heart.
In that lightness,
I claim a love of others
taking that on as an adventure,
