Awakened from a dream, I curl up
and turn. The roses on the dresser
smile and your words bloom.
The red roses for Valentine’s Day.

Like in a film
thoughts of you unfold
moment by moment.
 
I vaguely hear
the sound of your spoon scooping cereal
the water stream in the shower
the buzzing noise of your electric razor
like a singing of cicada.

Your footsteps in and out of the bedroom.
Your lips touching my cheek lightly.
And the sound of the door shutting.

In your light
I fall asleep again under the warm quilt
happily like a child.

Upon waking
on the kitchen counter I find a half
grapefruit carefully cut and sectioned.
Such a loving touch is a milestone
for my newly found happiness.
— Chungmi Kim, “Being in Love”

I love it when it all goes flat, and leaves and clouds 
are instances of one idea— 
for such is night, I think, 
while day is how far 
one must go 

to connect parts.
— Jorie Graham, from Erosion

And we, who have always thought
of happiness as rising, would feel
the emotion that almost overwhelms us
whenever a happy thing falls.
— Rainer Maria Rilke

You think you are helpless because you are empty-handed
of concepts that could become your strength—
— Adrienne Rich, from Letters Censored, Shredded, Returned To Sender Or Judged Unfit To Send

When you have nothing to say,
the sadness of things
speaks for you.
