A poem

I see the lantern that is my heart

as torn at the edges

proof of its journey through

the winds of time

through suffering and abuse

each tiny tear a beautiful

break in the fabric of life

an openingĀ for my light to shine

and when it does

it makes a sound that only

the birds can recognize

as the sound of wings

moving through the air


I see the boat that is my life

as small and weathered

yet somehow in its smallness

it survives the journey

in the vast ocean of circumstance

it holds itself together

and gently holds my soul

to receive the blessing

of another day
