a birthday poem for my wife

let's begin with this:
i love you. & more -
some days i am breathless & 
astounded. yes; astounded.

vast distances sometime stretch us
& differences strengthen us
no more or less than our desire,

vision, hope. let this year be
lifted up as an offering, as an
invocation, as a promise.
entreaty. not begging. desparate
to catch our breath again.
