I Have Learned So Large

I have learned so large

the space open for my soul.

Clouds hover below

as I circle away

from the snow-wound expanses.

 

I have learned so large

the paths of my soul traveling.

Aimless Autumn steps

walking with you

until we are lost

and I think:

“This is it.

This is how the life goes here.”

 

I have learned so large the flowering

of my soul

lovely as wild pink roses

as dandelions seeding

miraculous as the five white petals

that turn to bitter lemons.
