celebrating and creating our own LGBT history

day fourteen

 

Enough

of these sorrows,

Spoke out my heart

 

They have been many

And they have been weighty

 

And the gap between them

Brief

 

They are part of me

But they are not me

 

And then appeared a magpie

Flash of turquoise

Between the sun and the branch

 

Just the one for sorrow

 

A shower of griefs

Rain down

Rain down

 

My heart cracks open

Wider

To contain this new, unwelcome sorrow

 

A flight of swallows

Takes to the sky

 

Towards a horizon steeped in grace.
