Communion

Empathy is such a miraculous thing.

 

 

Communion

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
from Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

 

All I want from this life
is to sit in the quiet of day
write myself out of this world
and into the room where
you sit in the sunlit quiet
in the murkiness dusk brings.
the page an open invitation
between us: tell me
about despair, yours,
and I will tell you mine.
