fall in love
with all that makes you stand out in a crowd
with every last step you have taken unbowed
with every last breath you possess that’s profound
the time is now
to fall in love
with that where hope abounds
bleed your truth
and read it out aloud

 

feed the roots with light and air
hereby declared
in kind
stand with a defiant air
of heightened senses primed
leave behind the glaring eyes
of shame unfairly specified
and set aside the pestilence that chairs address as pesticide
feed the roots with light and air
hereby declared
in kind
fall in love
with life again
unite with friends
and testify
prize the eyes
most blessèd of design

 

fall in love
with all the falls preceeding vested rise
lend each step to enterprise
extend best leg
and exercise
verify a way of life
less changeable to petrify
resurrect each darkening
and death defy

 

weave the shadow
light trace through
braid the plaits
diffracting true
daisy chains
enrapture bloom
whence day and night
in time resume
fall in love
with both the sun and moon
as each becomes
for deep betwixt
the mystic river runs

 

fall in love
with the mirror’s reflection
forgive any parting retention
the time is now
to let it out
shed self contempt
drip fed devout
the time is now
to fall in love
with life again
delight no end
the light and air
hereby declared
in kind
stand with a reliant air
and all ten senses primed
find the smile
that only we deny ourselves the right
to fall in love
in time again
with life
