i want to go there with you

there is love
we cross oceans or continents
to meet, finally

& love we stumble over
sleeping in doorways
comfortable, familiar

the magic in it is not so much
where it is found, or how
but where we let it lead

& wherever that is
i want to go there with you

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?

    • Aw, thank you, Boomie. Remember that old line– “Pardon, your slip is showing?” I want to answer that with “it’s not my slip, it is the heart peeking out, just a little…”

  2. Susan!!! This is just wonderful. I’ve missed reading your work. Gone back to work I have and haven’t had near enough time to skim WordPress. Lovely.. just lovely!!

  8. beauty emerges when the finger strokes on key board speak the voice of the soul, and sing it so clearly and powerfully!

  9. I love the simplicity of this, Susan. Your poetry can sometimes be quite challenging and, dare I say it, intellectual, which is not a criticism, btw! You have many strings to your bow, this is the one that shoots Cupid’s arrow πŸ™‚
