old couple 2I want to ask about your day before your day begins
not “How was it?” but rather “How will it  be?
What will you do?
What will you want or need?
How can I help?”

I want your day to unfold
like origami in reverse
un-creasing itself
losing its shape
and flattening back
into beautiful possibilities

one day
you will be what you become

in the meantime
your life will bend and fold
as you see fit

each choice is a part of the becoming
all of us
and crease

we create ourselves over and over
until we become
what we are
and that ends up becoming
who we are

I want to ask about your day
because I want to know who you will be

I want to ask before your day begins
so that you will know

I already revere who you are.
