poem for cindy

(don't swing at me here)

inadequate
my demons
i feel scared

you are a soft place to land

send me in reverse
to a similar place

this is it

it's what you are

you make people think
and feel
and express

(like me)

(i love you)

the magic
that you have

is miles in the sky.

    Oh my goodness.
    You make me so jealous of your gifts with lines like that, that suck the air out of a room...

  9. The feeling I get from this reminds me of a great line that Chief Dan George keeps repeating in the movie "Little Big Man" to express his joy:

    "My heart soars like a hawk."

    (One of my all-time favorite movies)
