Ways I love you

by WD Tuck

I love you

like an ocean wave

traveling thousands of miles

in search of the perfect place to break
open into all it has to give.
I love you

like the lone sparrow

emerging at dawn with wings 

beating toward a red sun rising
in a distant place of mystery
I love you

like a golden flame

spreading across a cold plain

with embers close enough to warm us
or consume us both entirely.
I love you

like a gentle wind

kissing your forehead

reminding you to look up at wide sky
so blue you can only see possibilities.
