garlands of grace

*for brownin’*

for so many reasons
that your feet have become
garlands of grace
there have been reasons
where you’ve felt them gripped in pain
like thorns embedded just below the skin
i appreciate that much more
your footsteps
and hope that one day
my own hands
can rival water
and course around your toes enough
for your skin to flush with joy
