For Lucy


May you unfold,
opening slowly to the sky

Shoulders wide, hands stretched
to fill with

every second of your life.17833_310490464902_857963_n

To catch
your perfect beauty.

May you unfold.

Eyes raising, face into the sun
like a flower in first light

Turning to the dawn of something eternal
within you.

May you unfold
Lips trembling, soft.

May your whole body
tingle with joy

in an unfettered embrace

Soaked to the skin, unmasked
and unafraid

May you see clearly, all in one time
That you are always

That you are love, personified

May you unfold.


(Jani Franck)
