Often a Sweetness Comes

Monarch & Kits

Often a sweetness comes
as if on loan,
stays just long enough
to make sense of what it means to be alive,
then returns to its dark source.
As for me,
I don’t care
where it’s been,
or what bitter road it’s traveled
to come so far,
to taste so good.

    I really like the balance of words and sounds here.

    This is lovely… the yin and yang of life. A beautiful thought to be visited by sweetness.
