Spring Cleaning


Mother Nature

Ten years of pain

hidden from the world.

Invisible wounds

shaping thought to alter reality.

Slowly shifting,

the fight undertaken

to forge a new reality.

Forged from old,

hung behind the day to day wear –

Outlived and kicked

to the sidewalk.

Spring cleaning underway.

Grit replacing grief,

stitched in anger.

A cold armor shielding my heart in repair.

The ground unthawing, 

my pain on ice – Most of it

washed away –

Recycled on rainy days.

Today sunny and clear.

My longing laid bare in the fair blue sky.

Dreams making their way

 up through the mud.
