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.

unique

you taught me
that beauty
does not
require
perfection

it is a lesson
i’ve held close

and now
as we wind our
way around newly
discovered
imperfections

i remember
that lesson

i hold close
all the ways
that we are beautiful
