LEARNING

I am learning,
Learning to find anew,
Like the sun finds the sky at dawn,
Like the sea finds the beach at high tide,

I am learning,
Learning to embrace,
Like air embraces the earth that breathes it,
Like light embraces its shadows,

I am learning,
Learning to forgive,
Like the eraser forgives the graphite,
Like the rain forgives drought,

I am learning,
Learning to cherish,
Like the picture in a tiny necklace locket,
Like the memories held in notes of a song,

I am learning,
Learning to embolden,
Like a painter’s brush on a canvas,
Like a meek man training for war,

I am learning,
Learning in the school of life,
To fail again and again and repeat,
Learning to study love and take notes,

I am learning,
Learning to love like I love myself,
Relentless and unwavering,
Unconditional and true
