We can reclaim

Lost sanity.

Small step by small step

We can restore

What this recent time had

Hammered in brutality.

The foundations are still there

Trusting rescue

Shaken but resistant.

Inchmeal by inchmeal

We can bring back home

Revive

Transform

The currently abandoned

Humanity.

Heated

In the heat

Of the desert

In the heat

Of the fight

They will spar

Under swelter

To claim heat

With their might.

In Your Grasp

It is in your grasp

To take hold

To absorb

Offered light

Life’s rewrite.

It’s within your soul

To recall

To be bold

In the hollowed out space

Of your mind

To breathe deep

To grow whole.

Transformed

The moment where the seasons

Shift.

The transmutation

Of the summer

Into fall

Already final

Even if not

Entirely

Complete.

Temporarily Forever

The tender bloom stays but few days

Yet made of atoms forged

In times

Before eons,

And will remain

As it transforms

To almond, seed, tree, earth, person:

All life’s

Ions.

 

 

For The Photo Challenge

Overcome

As change and challenge come

And you are stretched

Beyond what seems possible

To overcome,

Recall

How transformation

Can become

Its own journey

To an unexpected

Outcome.

 

 

 

For The Daily Post

Empty Focus

My nephew took this photo some years back during a summer hiking trip. I love it for its absolute focus and the mystery of the inhabitant that had created this fabulously textured, now deserted, sheltered place of transformation. A dried out speck in the blurry landscape and yet so wholly a world onto its own, now gone.

Emptied to Fulfill

For The Daily Post – Photo Challenge

Light can find the way

Light can find the way

Through the narrowest keyhole

If we hold it

Up.

If we open

Eyes and hearts.

Light can show the door

To releasing darkness

Till it is disarmed

Transformed

Transmuted

Away

Into the light of

a new day.
