a lot can happen in 3 years.

How is it possible?

That you were a soft sleeping thing

on a blanket on the tropical sand,

three long and short years ago?

Now you’re this

loud wild running laughing thing

full of sweet and spice and silly

in the chilly Oregon spring air.

 

How is it possible?

That I was a sad and dreamy thing

frightened and exhilarated by the love

I felt for such a tiny, vulnerable person.

Now I’m this

inspired passionate courageous responsible thing

strong and brave and powerful in the face

of adversity and prosperity–

 

How is it possible?

Both these transformations?

 

It was the love that did it–

 

the love that broke down,

broke open,

and broke free.
