from One with Willows by Joan Myles, copyright 2019
In the deepest darkness of the season
and of our lives,
we tucked ourselves beneath blankets of yearning.
He yearned for me.
I yearned for You.
And somewhere in the stillness,
in shared words of the sages,
in yearning itself,
we found one another again.
