As soul-crushingly difficult this journey has been, I am fortunate to have made it this far. Many don’t.

After the storm,
again the sun,
hugs tightly 
in light and warm.
Honor those lost
before its return.
Savor the splendor
of strong medicine
calling the soul
to rise and sing,
downhearted spirit
lifted on wings,
fed and bathed
until once more
among the heavens 
I will soar.
