one word rio frio: shallow

in the great deeps
you'll find

little beyond

what you can find

right here

in the sun on your

son's lovely back

the rise of your wife's

anthem, as she gathers

wisdom to her breast,

cherishing the rest...

Profundity in the "shallow." The beauty of the personal--why we're alive, inhabiting this body alongside others. No?

Amen, Bro. Murat, Amen! The label "emeralds" combined with the poem makes me think of the story "Cornelia's Jewels". You have captured the truly precious things of life.
