Lilac petals fall


a single nettle leaf


And carry

on a wind

into the river


And in




Like this,

making Love

is a falling to pieces,


A generative undoing

of self

into the whole.


Thank you, Spring

for allowing us a chance

to forgive


And to make room

for your sweet light

to move.
