today

today was cemetery and flower: concrete and petal
or as v. w. so beautifully says, granite and rainbow

today was crying and laughing, remembering and forgetting, life and death
in a fancy hotel bar with the chirpy waitresses
but also in bed watching korean dramas with the two people i love and respect most in the whole world

today was being inwardly still, and rested, and quietly amazed that i have been brought into this fold of love–
love that shields me from all manner of storm so that i never have to be afraid
but also soberly remembering that the fold must move outward, must stretch outward to bring others in
or else it is not love at all
