Lois (a love poem)

it was simply her
for him, and he hers
when they let themselves
scale all their losses
piled up & sealed
in that stone mountain
between them

how easy they made it look,
that climb to reach each other
without dynamic lines
or other safety nets

sweet to watch
the gruff man’s gentleness
flower to smiles
& her distance
thaw to blushing


when she forgot
all but her mother’s name
& even still later
when she no longer had words

she knew him

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?
