bright thoughts in a dream:
i can sense your arrival, warm sunshine on my open face, a slight breath of a breeze on the back of my neck.
it's like opening an envelope. it's like a poached egg split open over avocado toast. it's like unzipping the tent door in the morning between the trees.
it's like a deep drink of clear water after a long hike. it's like the clasping of palms. it's like diving into the deepest part of the pool.
it's like holding a bunny rabbit as it sleeps. it's like uncontrollable laughter. it's like seeing the opening titles of a film in a theatre and waiting until the end credits scroll all the way through.
i am opening my arms and inviting you in.
reconciliation at all reasonable costs.
