I have no words
For that word
Only broken images:
Burned bridges
Fallen trees
Slanted flowers
Clouded light

    – Good days will come too.

  2. Missed you around the blogosphere. Nice to know you still have some beautiful words to share

  3. I love the progression of this poem. Burned bridges are pretty much ruined and can’t really lead to anywhere. Fallen trees can be repurposed and transformed. Slanted flowers at least still look pretty even though they are dying, and with a little light, love, and water they can come back to life, or at least return again the following year. And behind the clouded light is pure light, and clouds are always moving, always parting. Hang in there ❀
