Poem

I received the world’s coolest holiday letter yesterday from Aimless Love. No offense to my other friends who have sent me fabulous, more traditional holiday letters, like , and , but this one rocks.

She sent a standard, full-of-holiday-cheer pic of her whole family, and then enclosed this poem:

Growing up
Copyright 2006 by Aimless Love

in our cozy home
things still
appear
grow
change

not plants
but people
and ideas
and convictions

learning geometry proofs
and world capitals
also
how to
read the map of each others’ hearts

we learn scales
and f-stops
remembering the map
is not the same as the terrain

remembering that now
is not then

On the horizon
empty nests appear to take shape

Vision becomes blurred
and sharpened

as some reach forward
while others reach back

as love binds what time steals

– Christmas 2006

  2. ‘learning geometry proofs
    and world capitals
    also
    how to
    read the map of each others’ hearts’

    so evocative…
