I Want To Speak

(Originally published on Upon The Waters of the Heart, on May 30, 2016.)


I want to speak
of godly love
in pretty words and
flowing metaphors

but today it is simply
four taps of my spoon
against the side of my cup
and “here, this coffee’s for you.”

You’ve said this simplicity
is what you love
about our marriage
that it is just about us

that I am your Home
a place you can drop
all your masks
and simply be.

When I long for
complexity and ritual
you remind me
that there is holiness

in sitting together
and watching
the morning sun
rise over our world.
