Ways of Love

How many ways of love are there?

In this room in each of us,
in our family and friends unable to be here
in our beloved ones gone before us
how many ways of love are there?

Could you name the ways of love of the people closest to you?

Ways of love often hide from our eyes
moving silently, invisibly, instead

Today, a new way of love is moving in the world
their way of love —

it is unique; it is unfolding before us
it is radiating, reaching all of us
and, their way of love, will, sometimes, hide from our eyes
choosing to move silently, invisibly, instead

Today, a new way of love is moving in the world —
Jeremy and Junnie’s way of love.

It seems like a lifetime ago. Someone who’d just met me said, “Your dharma is to be a writer.” I laughed it off. Now here I am, not wanting to do much else.
