For I have never
Touched you
Nor looked keenly into your eyes
Where flecks of gold reside
I have not
Made a circle of my arms
Nor placed your hand against my skin
In whispering we tell the bond, far and long
You reached me before, I knew to look
Like coming back from a journey
There you were, the one I always needed
Familiar and apart
In the courage of your determining
You are a whirlwind
You are energy and life made electric
You stir even the dry river, full
Bringing with you
The power of you
As redolent and unapologetic as
Only truth will

  1. It’s wonderment when this takes place:
    “You are a whirlwind

    Bringing with you

    And, you write of it beautifully, Candice.

  2. How lovely to sing the praises of one who has blessed you so! I assume you have let them know personally as it would be sad should they not know. πŸ™‚ <3 xoxo

  3. There’s a lot of them here, as you can imagine πŸ˜‰ btw so I was off to the post office the other day with your two books in hand, on a day when I could drive, and low and behold the prices have gone CRAZY high didn’t know they’d changed. So I have been nixed by the sheer cost. However I’m thinking of others means of getting them to you and haven’t forgotten just wanted you to know

  4. So lovely to see one of the first beautiful bright spirits I met on WP long ago, back again. Your presence was sorely missed and I’m always so happy to see you my beautiful friend
