when love calls your name (audio poetry 1:22)


When Love comes home
She pirouettes across the threshold
Slipping in unannounced
Perhaps you were gazing in a different direction

She fills every chamber of your heart
Breathes long and deep into empty spaces
Sweeps comfort into corners too long ignored
Softens underfoot your every step forevermore

Love brings home the pieces left behind
Leads them to newfound yet familiar places
Sprinkles fresh dew on thirsting blossoms
Hangs silken drapes at the window to shade life’s glare

Love unwraps and emboldens
Illuminates and tempers
Calls your name and waits patiently for you to answer
Perhaps you were too busy to notice
