June finds me deep in love
by that, I do not mean a romantic, focused on a person, sort of thing
June, rather, finds me looking at dates on a calendar
    daughter’s birthday
    sister’s as well
    Father’s Day and once upon a time an anniversary
    friends’ celebrations 
love though, is more than a list of occurrences
love is the reason
why I send a message, greeting, a bit of hope
the long and short of life’s choices
love is the solidity, as well as the longing
a promise it all means
something, if only a wish
next June will find me deep in love
