Radiance Angelina Petro
Love melts reason as the sun melts butter.
Frighten Kal away with the light of your heart.
The power is within you, where else would it be?
When the complications that come from choosing
overwhelm, and the slow, arc of your life
cracks its joisted beams, remember
love is easy in gardens, and he lives among roses.
With his voice soft as cobwebs, he whispers
the fulfillment of his promise over and over.
Even the frog has a jewel between its eyes.
Even sorrow confesses a blessing. And he has placed
a watermark on your soul.
His way is always thoroughgoing, and your nights together
will taste the incense of union, and you can never be lost
from the field of his vision. Rest in the still places
he has waiting for you.
