there is love
we cross oceans or continents
to meet, finally
& love we stumble over
sleeping in doorways
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?

I smiled after reading this. Me like 🙂
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…”
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!!
Jennie–thank you, and I have missed you! Work is a good thing, but it keeps us so busy sometimes, blast it…
Yes, one more day a week would be nice.
Yes. Today & tomorrow are my weekend in the middle of the week this week, because it is my weekend to work, so I am resenting it…
oh! You’re turned inside out. I promise to do nothing fun this weekend… only laundry and house cleaning. LOL
LOL–oh, no–go out and have fun at double the dose!
Yes–for both of us–you MUST 😉

Aw, K–thank you!
I love the second verse – it feels good 🙂
I’d tell you to rest your brain Susan, but I don’t think you need it.
Aw, Trent, thank you!
This beautiful and I am reblogging!
beauty emerges when the finger strokes on key board speak the voice of the soul, and sing it so clearly and powerfully!
Noel, thank you. The feeling/inspiration are powerful, and should be honored in any way possible…
Reblogged this on visionvoiceandviews.
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 🙂
Paul, thank you! Yes, this is about as anti-intellectual as you can get, and is pure feeling. Important to go there (into feeling) when called to.
I like the thought and impetus. KB
This is so beautiful, and going to get me through this day.
Oh, thank you!
This is such a feel good poem … thanks for sharing 🙂
Glad to. Quite apropos, actually.
Happy face inspiring!
Very sweet, Susan. Wanting nothing more but companionship and love. A richly innocent desire.
Thanks, George. Oh I like that combination of innocence and desire–it resonates.
Very nice, Susan.
reminds me of Galway Kinnel! Wonderful !
oh, thanks, sweetie!
