Have Faith


In the creek
that will overflow
banks of fear
to flood our meadows
flush with verdant glory.

In frosts and
icy indifference
which withers blooms
and lightens the load
of a fruitful tree.

In searing pain
that outruns the
inertia of despair and
spurs our leap
to higher ground.

In greeting sadness
that throws a door
open to the company
of love along
our journey home.

NaPoWriMo #16

I’m writing a poem every day in April as part of NaPoWriMo’s celebration of National Poetry Month. We may be able to live without poetry, but who would want to?
