This is Where Love Lives

The aroma of bread baking in the oven
The tear welling up in the corner of the baby’s eye
The old men singing perfectly in four-part harmony
This is where love lives.

The ancient grey Sox hat wilted with wear
The unlabeled bottle olive oil from the flea market
The cracked and faded Christmas card in the dusty box
This is where love lives

The broken zipper on your favorite coat
The renegade ringlet that tickles your left ear
The crescent moon red wine stain on the white linen
This is where love lives

The long, stray eyelash stuck to your glasses
The burnt lonely sesame seed under the coffee maker
The lonely rivulet of water in the steam on the kitchen window
This is where love lives
