A Leap year

It’s a little longer
This year
This lap around
the Fiery sphere

A day more
to revel in the wonders
A day more
to see, feel and hear

A day more
to pause and think
A day more to
See things clear

What’s me
And what’s you
A day more to stretch
Beyond the near and dear

time to embrace
the difference of mine and you
to quench with love
the raging fire of fear

To have faith
Beyond my own faith
A day more
To make the boundaries dissappear

Its time to surge
Time to shed the phony exterior
A day more
To take a leap of faith this year
