What if the mightiest word is love, love beyond marital, filial,
national. Love that casts a widening pool of light. Love with no
need to preempt grievance.
In today’s sharp sparkle, this winter air, anything can be made,
any sentence begun.
On the brink, on the brim, on the cusp — praise song for walking
forward in that light.
