Thom #1

it is easy to love you
while you sleep,
arms wide in careless abandon
small smile curving your lower lip

so much easier
than when you wake,
yesterday’s anger
still framing your eyes

do not forget
it is our differences
that draw us together

flint and steel
together spark fire


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?
