Resilience

In the darkness, I wonder 

if I’ve lost my way.

I look to the stars 

but their whispers fall silent,

the trees stand mute, 

grasses refuse to wave.

All I can do 

is step into the sun

and let its warmth steep my soul,

or pause in that moment of peace

at the end of the day,

I follow silence into corners

of night-darkened rooms,

slip between the notes 

of my childhood songs,

wrap myself up in the rainbow’s indigo band

and wait for my heart 

to come beating slowly back.

    This is just what those swathes of sun are for. Now I know. 🙂 This image is going to stay with me!
