falling in love is not something that happens just once,
it might start in seemingly personal ways, but it is endless and
my husband and i were out at a plant nursery, where we divided and
chased after our respective whims and I found myself
and falling in love with this vine. Partly it was because it was fuzzy,
but mostly, it was the energy of the vine.
we will be celebrating our half-a-decade anniversary soon
(my husband and I, not me and the vine – but in some ways,
yes. that too.)
i’m already celebrating,
celebrating how this joyous experience is mostly everywhere, most
often, most of the time.
the same day, children were everywhere, it seemed
(no matter where we went)
playing musical instruments.
it was the day I really remembered how much I like to sing.
and a couple of days after a friend and study buddy listed from the top of her head,(unprompted) a list! of
her favorite poems from the book I wrote and published in 2017
Starting with, “Sing. out. 🙂 (: Sing in.”
the falling in love just keeps going…
in this real live world, where non-attachment means
the certainty of connection.
As the Full Moon approaches, I am thanking the symbolism of Saturn: reliable, steadfast…
As I prepare for the Autumn, I know a re-newed focus awaits.
