Love Opens the Hands

 

Only the heart enjoys

this fishing without a net;

beauty locks all the doors

and disaster breaks them down.

 

Long absence resonates anticipation

like the guesswork of desire,

but deep roots grow

deliberately around rock

so that any guest who finally arrives

eclipses the sun becoming the feast

and the wine and the dessert.

 

Touch the scar, and it

will offer some astounding advice:

loveliness fades, but not grace;

the world loves lightning

less than fire.

 

Love opens the hands for kindness.

and kindness is a debtBi

you never tire of repaying.

 

(previously published in Kritya:  A Journal of Poetry and in Archeology of Light, Cross-Cultural Communications, 2011)
