her smile broke me open – November 4

11.4

her smile broke me

open the very first

time

 

sitting on the back

porch when I drove

up

 

and lighting up the

whole sun in my

sky.

 

years in the doing

asking, loving,

making

 

I only give thanks

that God sent her

anywhere

 

near to where I

lay.
