five suitcases (for RGH)

you take everything

five suitcases
heavy with longing
counted on fingers

that difference
lightening
translated to miles

(kilometers
where you are going)

what else is needed
as that matter of time
when you fly into it
scatters and collapses
into seconds

or is it firsts

that last step into arms
you both open

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Susan, you have captured it and me.
    This especially moves me to tears, happy ones.
    I say goodbye to the past and will greet the future with these words in my heart.
    Thank you, truly. It’s beautiful
