instructions, rephrased

turn
some
tenderness
inward

delight
in your
delight

see
not only
what lovers
can see

but see
what only
you can

and sprout
a little
new love
for yourself
daily

 

Audrey asked us to write a love poem to ourselves for their birthday. I haven’t quite been able to do that, but this is a start of a start.
