She must learn again to speak
starting with I
starting with We
starting as the infant does
with her own true hunger
and pleasure
and rage.

My Review of 2013

My Review of 2013

The thought of death never crossed my mind,

Until a friend saw me two months later,
and hugging me tightly,
and she said...

"I'm SO happy that you didn't die!"
(rather dramatic, don't you think?)

Or was it?

I awakened a in new way, and
feeling everything,

despair and fear and doubt

and Grace...

more life, more God, more strength

My room for losses grew
Almost as much my love grew

So much loss

So much love
So much loveā€¦

Almost A Reflection

Almost A Reflection
