I see why I rush home…

I see why the world

is as beautiful as it is, why

so many colors strut about, why

the air reveals the scents

you placed on your body,

the seasonings

you placed in your food,

the incense

you burned in the house;

I see why class is such a joy

or work is where I toil;

I see why I rush home…

because you are there

unfolding in the way the world

unfolds, one day at a time.

We love you deeply

because you love

deeply. We bless you daily

because you are a daily blessing.

We favor you especially

because you are

the gift
