A Universe Within

A Universe Within

This love gives
            does not demand
It flows 
It grows
             It heals
             the ill winds
             that could  destroy
             the universe within . . .

It says        
     'true friendship
respects space for
           Family
and does not worship
Workaholic 
          attitudes.'

Instead it means 
People Pray 
over a 
park table
            punctuated by birdsong . . .

For this love says  
              'I don’t care
              where you come from
                      or when you are going
                       my heart will beat
                        and travel in 
                                a suitcase    beside you . . .

I respect the time you have
            given again and again.
            
You do not need to tell me
            all the hurt 
                  unspoken stories
                  we both hold close
                  to our hearts

We are still 
                Unstitching 
               Traumas 
               woven into our hearts
               to 
              make new
              Patterns.
