capital improvement

let’s invest in you and me:
loving in sincerity,
speaking what we feel and see,
drawing our own lines —

let’s invest in time and act,
resolutions made to fact,
kindness, truthfulness and fact,
sweeping all the mines

that explode when we demur –
silence when we don’t concur –
swirling feelings then we stir,
hiding behind faces —

let’s invest in building us:
aggregating hope and trust,
speaking freely as we must,
and allowing spaces —

so when days grow shorter, dimmer,
there will ever be a glimmer
of a love that still can shimmer
though of changed demeanor

capital improvement, really:
very firm (though touchy-feely)
love that’s given, taken freely,
grass that’s ever
