sanguine love

emotions fill the sky
and my heart

with sanguine love
a pain, like an albatross

of hope and dismay
conjuring various realities

in some
I’m filled with anticipation
while in others

is a constant companion

yet, it’s in between them both
a mystery comes up

from the shallow river water, to the ice caps
of the tallest mountain

the shadowed, and shaded land
where the push, and pull of life’s paradoxes

gives each of us a welcoming hand
