poem-thinking of you September 3, 2017

Today, I’m thinking of you,

new friend, met for a weekend,

those intense moments of stretching

ourselves into expectation,

birthing pains.

I find your words here,

between the pages,

and hear the anguish of your loss.

I remember our late night conversation,

the smile you fought for as you shared.

I’m thinking of you,

and wishing you lightness,

today.

Take that moment of your greatest pain

and channel it into power.

Stare down the darkness and bend it to your will.

Use it to transform words

into a hydro station of energy

that transforms worlds.

I dream sienna

Sunsets drippppppping

Onto rocks

Carving red rivers

That slice down

…………….down

…………….down

…………….down

…………….down

Like blood bathed tears

Slice flesh.

It is a Grand Canyon of pain

River winding edge to edge

Touching grief upon grief

From the top

Black trees silhouette

Against a flaming sky

scorched earth burning

in the beauty of pain.
