JOY … in our ability to reach out and love

I think human beings are remarkable for their ability to reach out and love even though they know it’s all going end.

the wheat has ripened, the lavender is fading
white jasmine breaths into gray signs of rain

in your lively days, you were light and laughter
now i know you as a shadow across the face of the moon,
an empty house in my heartland
