on love

6 . October . 2011

 


an afternoon friend
who arrives with
cheerful flowers,


…and minty-watermelon salad,

and leaves a dozen hot empanadas
[from empanada mama]
on my counter
for our dinner later?

i’m melted
with her love,

with Christ’s love in her.


meeting mr. philip newman

makes the whole trip to
london worth it.

our love to
daddy, mama +
big sister eloise.

6 . October . 2011


grace c is in denmark,

christina is in hawaii,

cory is in london,

anita is in atlanta,

and
joyce is in new hampshire,

but the rest of us* were
at catalyst last night.

worshiping together and
looking at the city,

[‘city’ as any place of density,
diversity and cultural energy]

and its needs and
our awareness of
how we can serve and pursue
its overall health.

it was a difficult evening in some ways,
and i was drinking it in, in others.

ps to you 5:
hurry [safely] home.
we need you there next wednesday.
