Of Living and Loving

Grief is the guaranteed price we pay for love. Ann Voskamp



Ebb-flow, hold-let-go
Glad-sad winnowing
Filling up time’s little cup
With living

Old-new, how-are-you
Time-chime echoing
Where today becomes the fray
Of living

Touch-taste, pause-haste
Love-trove’s take-giving
As we learn the no-return
In living

Small-tall, leap-fall
Flying barely-moving
Lending us the impetus
For loving

Push-pull, empty-full
Kiss-then-miss you wringing
Where joy’s leaf is ripe with grief
Of loving 
and living
