a valentine's day poem for my wife

(o my)

love - there are moments!
in the night, in the morning; when i least expect
surprise, sing heart & body
afire & aglow & incandescent

my love -
all is forgotten, then, in those moments: name, time,
regret, fear, doubt. all of it - lost in you.
it is everything, this forgetting, this
emptying, this filling with life, this

vigour, this strength. this moment. this, now.
