haiku 20

Today my daughter decided, after being accepted into ten colleges, that she will go to Northeastern University next fall. Like her, I’m thrilled, excited, scared and kind of giddy. It’s all so crazy to love a person so much that you let her go. This step is the next one in the path of devotion.

she began inside
breath by breath she grew and grew
soon she flies away
