That happened.

What was,

a dream she lived flying,

is over.

 

Something different has begun

in wait underground,

near

and just below

vast remains above.

 

And if she sits, only watching clouds,

seed misses soil.

So she takes to clearing duff

strolling in the memory of heaven is Earth,

where brokenness shapes the loveliest bird

and the widow, who is a woman,

surrenders herself

to watering life.

 

Written March 2016.
