Softly sowing

Posted by on June 6, 2012

“So every day
So every day
I was surrounded by the beautiful crying forth
of the ideas of God,
one of which was you.”
~ Mary Oliver

When we push our faces into the light,

how can we anticipate the many ways we will be twisted and broke wide open

or how a hard, dark knot of loss can, somehow, against it all

turn soft and gentle over time.


Or how a single sigh can scatter what remains.


Remembering Devin today.

And always.

And a breath of a kiss for Elaine.
