on love.

William H. Johnson, Caféca. 1939-1940.
When I learned about love,
I was on my knees, 
praying for mercy & wisdom.
I believed what they said:
G-d listened, and G-d cared.

I grew to love myself,
to open my heart (late).
The right girl found me
and waited, and led me 
to believe again, believe anew. 

The challenge for this one, I think, was to stick to five-line stanzas or five words in each line. Every time I write about my wife, I’m tempted to use that image above..
