Loving Petula

Letters to Petula

I'll never say it lightly -
That I want to dissolve
into the look of your life


Because when I love
It's like the way a flower
sings to the bees -


Where it asks, just for a moment:
"Let me touch your beautiful face
And understand its every aspect"


Which I imagine is also unbearably
close to the feeling


Of falling into the tall grass
of God's heart
That sways in the breeze
That sighs under the sun.
