Her lyrics open the roomful
of hearts unfamiliar with invitations
beckoned by ethereal vulnerability.
His words pull sacred cows down.
The ease between them
along with simple affection
and the way they frame and build the other up
is more vital than the illuminated art they brought.
Our world needs to see how a beloved woman's
eyes shine when her gaze lights on her lover.
