Stretch

“The gifts of life increase in size,
To see them,
grow larger eyes.

We must stretch to reach them,
open hearts to feed them.
expand to be them.

 Come to the edge,
Lean on tip-toes,
Arms held out wide,
Tears springing from glowing eyes,
Stand tall with open palms.

Receive gifts,
Feel your heart
Smile wide enough
To swallow the sun. “
