so love tanka

so love tanka
“i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)” — e.e. cummings

you quicken our hearts
(and our eyes start to well up)
saying, i LOVE you!

so precious, so mutual,
so open, so deep, so true!

      Thank you, Judy. But I’m also sharing Sali’s heart and soul. Without her none of this poetry would exist. She is my love and inspiration, my muse. I just reflect on what’s happening and try to put in words the sweet-sad transformational wonder of it all.
