A poem of renewal

This is love,

to see the sun sparkle

On late summer trees, dust-glimmered

in their celandine glory,

This is life,

to hear the raw honesty

of a beloved child,

This is revelation,

to watch the erratic dance

of strange birds in exotic climes,

All of this is more than enough

to heal a heart's darkness.

But had I none of these,

Still I would feel my blood

like a strong river, my heart

with its native beat,

I cannot deny them.

Rise then, and forward,

You are a teeming universe.

Raise your courage like a chalice.

Drink of this new day.
