To, my daughter K
If all else fell away,
and you simply
The clouds turning to ice with our exhale,
I would stay.
And, sit. Embracing the silence,
existing beside you.
the snow blowing in sheets off the mountain.
Do you See?
Shivering, I would lean toward you,
listen, that's my heart, and feel -
the warmth pulsating,
surrounding us. Protecting us.
The sun blinds in its brilliance,
but in blindness we are free.
This gravity of me
This connection that whispers I love you
is our heaven.
If all else fell away….
