The most beautiful story is ordinary
Typical Love

As ordinary as oatmeal
the collared dog that must walk
like sunshine that was there
when you first got up
still burning behind the mask...
as free as that bird builds
a nest in the garage gutter
like leaves, gentle, obey the winds
falling, falling, falling down
to your ground
to lay...

our lips embrace

Brittle twigs
commingled lay broken
once green swayed in soaring tree
a canopy, warm shelter
for two children, three cats
those hamsters content
chittering like raindrops
in our hearts.

Small hands, tender
wrap ours
calling, calling, calling
'come watch...'
know innocence, true beauty
how we heal them
in the night
from bad dreams
unjustly pained by sickness
where we are safe
to dream.

a typical love
we share our stories together
so others know
how ordinary as oatmeal.
