Offerings

Surrounding you
the collection
pauses the seasons
the changing of days
those slices of grace
which catch your breath
held the wonder there
so fragile, fleeting
how it escapes you
not to be chased
nor caught for long
touches you, those tender
places you secure
held close and dear
to be left unseen, how
it grows in you now
something more to be
shared trepidation
walking the stairs
toward her room
stills your time you say
yet these things call
for the wind, the torrent
swept to others’ steps
laid their humble offerings
gifts of fruit and hope
moan the heart
exposed.
