for the love of this poem 


, i shall give her a stanza skirt 
of royal scarlet and turquoise, 
a pearly glint of autumn moon. 

she’ll swoon when i show her
this gentle noise of stream, 
the golden sunsets seams 

i’ve sewn into her hem. the trem
-bled sway of breeze. these trees 
are her runway. someday, 

she’ll see the swell of my chest 
as she breathes her syllables, 
know the thrumbeats of my 

heart are tuned to her smile. 
someday, she’ll stay. for today,
i’ll just whisper her all the whim 

and worth my lips cannot say, 
but my fingers know deep. and 
pray she’ll keep them safe.

    I am at a loss for words.

    The core is mother-daughter, and holds all the best hopes and intentions for the girl’s future, earthly and heavenly. Beautiful, breathtaking work and heart.
