Wrestling for Joy

Comes Easy:

New Life
Tiny clothes folded
A clean kitchen floor newly muddied by paw prints
Kisses in the dark
Chubby cheek to cheek grins that come with every new morning
Coffee Brewing
The buzzing of straight stitches
Seeing through baby's eyes and imagining all things new
Chalked verses on a kitchen blackboard
Stretching on my tiptoes for a hug

Hard Eucharisteo:

Death, because the sinner's prayer in an old man's heart is still enough
Pain while stooping for a hug
Discovering my own pride
Heavy sighs
