To Be Love With You


If I were
coming or going
I would want to do it
exactly like a bird
who knows how
to sing and to call out,
to nest and to take flight
without pondering or doubt.
I would want to do it
like an ant might,
carrying its weight in
sustenance and
nothing more,
working in unison
to build and create,
to protect the colony
and feast on this life
from the grand scope
of our ground.
I would want to do it
holding your hand,
more than okay with
any direction at all
so long as
there are horizons
we are dreaming
about, that we
don’t need to
get to,
moving through
all of this
together. – TS
