is simply wanting
& letting yourself have
one small thing

the trick of it
is learning exactly when
to open your hands

to catch it
before it falls
& breaks

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?
