Today has been a day
of discovering that many who I hold dear
are experiencing extreme losses..

How can this be when the sun shines here,
when I am so full of life and loving every bit of living,
enjoying myself and those around me...

These seeds,
went into the earth yesterday...
bare soil,
raked and scratched,
dark and fertile,
moist and yearning
for the seeds of the hills of my youth,
planted in the middle of the city...

How can this be,
this loss,
this receiving,
this mystery that no one can answer...
this joy of knowing
that my hand could hold and then release
such beauty...
