The June air, moist with longing,
is a double-edged knife.
Her memory slices me.
Where my soulís blood trickles
a wild wind rushes in
to soothe and cool, to heal.

Time and nature temper pain.
While it is not removed,
raging river rapids
are channeled, brought into
joyful obedience.
My course altered, I see

The distance, the journey long.
And, through the lens of love,
I see hope, trust restored
between us. Wishes bloom
like wild strawberries, ripe
on the vine. Here are two

for you: I wish abundance,
showers of blessings full.
Iíd grant you healing and
kaleidoscopic vision
that you might see the whole,
embrace both light and dark.

Life seen through the lens of the darkness of pain and the light of love. Sweet forgiveness is what we crave and need. Excellent write...

Keep that lens of love and hope bright and shiny, Dawn, and keep your cyclops vision through it so that you maintain your perspective and your true course towards restoration and reconciliation. "Sorry" is a relatively new capability I am mastering, but am learning that where wounds have been successfully and honestly healed, the resultant relationship has bonded stronger than it ever was before! Both being able to see and understand - and tolerate! - each other's light and dark goes a long way to being able to ultimately embrace it - and each other! Go you! An inspirational write, TY Kate xx
