Surrender

Sometimes

the sun rises in my heart

and I can do nothing in response but bloom where I am

 

Sometimes

I find you sleeping

and I must breathe in the peace you exhale

 

Sometimes

I catch the eye of a stranger

and I must bow down to the ways in which they are completing the universe

 

Sometimes

a poem is many words

but you know in your bones that its meaning is but one thing

 

-Surrender.
