Paradise is Anywhere

is anywhere
I let the light in

Clear lake 
shimmering water 
over my warmed toes
lily pads crown the surface
aligned on the dock
rowboats bob
gently knock

Daughter hug 
so deep and 
awareness dawns
that all the arguments 
and missteps
can come to this

Heated rays 
rosy on my face
twilight follows
with it 
a quieting embrace 
of evening

The peony’s tightly
protected bud
splits open
revealing a 
so big 
you wonder
how all that
could be contained

is anywhere 
I let the light in
