fountains in bloom…

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA


I’ve been pruning and planting till my bones whimper at night

but the quiet gets loud enough for me to hear
when I’m down there working busy with my hands
while my heart thumps out an easy healing rhythm
and it lights me up,  the love raining down

and it goes rolling like a river,
rolling through all the crazy-making pain that comes along
with living on this planet,
even the small stuff that squirms ugly

like the strange little worms dropping from the trees
that dangle creepy in my hair
and I can’t shake them off so my glove swipes awkward
and I wear their slime on my face
and it smells broken
and my heart nods how the stink is true

but the song rolls on truer, spilling down balm
until it’s beauty slices right through the muck
like powerful incense

and the sweetest fountain I know
catches my heart up into it’s music
and there is peace like a river
even.
so.

can empower us to forgive the wounds inflicted by others."

and releasing a river of peace
