I cannot divide
My heart
Into four pieces
Equally
Geometrically
And so I love
Each one of them
With my whole heart
 
Our family faces
Reflected
In this new generation
In their jokes
In their smiling eyes
In who they become
May we teach them
To love and to laugh

(2015)

For my beautiful nieces and nephews, who of course are the funnest kids in the whole wide world.
