April 8: Celebration

paler

handel's messiah
pales in glory
to the moment you
first opened your eyes
or smiled
or held my finger
with your whole hand
like a life-line thrown
in a tossing sea.

choirs of angels
cannot know
the feeling of
heart-works that
explode in fiery
chrysanthemums
when i take in the
wonder of
you.

  
For National Poetry Month and the Writing Prompt of Poetic Asides (celebration) and NaPoWriMo
