Poem

Little things
banal, not rare
when you absently smooth my hair
or the tread of your foot on the stair
those little things
set them aflutter.
When you call
for no good reason at all
at the sound of your voice
smooth as butter,
they sing.
But it’s the smile
in your eyes
when you rarely really see me
that’s when the birds in my heart
Take Wing.
