love and longing

i rest my eyes
on a beach's image
the sun-bathed child with hair aglow
sleeping body wrapped in cozy towel
and peaceful in the day

it comforts me in this shivery season
when outside air
smacks cold into my skin
and the sun warmth loses to the biting wind

when a frosty tree branch
juts leafless from a barked body
like an arm unable to throw

oh, love divine, grant health and growth
however quick or slow
in your ways we do not know
