doubting lotus, grasshopper

to be careful enough
to hold a life or a thing

a flower, a child, a teacup of
fine bone, and to hold

as if this had no weight
in hands, even as

arms ache with the pressure
to not let go, hold lightly enough

to touch, knowing where gravity
takes the weighted fall

Very beautiful, fragile but not frail and the smile from the title lasts all the way through,
