“Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; that there is always another dawn risen on mid-noon, and under every deep a lower deep opens.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
you don’t love
but you want
but you can’t
because the loss
would be your all
love is beyond risk
not luck but attention
you give beyond you
from who you are
to whom you care
beyond your first circle
to their larger circle
to look into the eyes
of another and see
an opening to love

(February 2013)
