After the Storm

Home 2014 216

In the midst of the storm we receive a new calling

in spite of the ice, in spite of our hatred for the pain

surviving the winds of a hurricane, can teach us

that it’s not about the storm, but it’s about the living

with the occasional bleed, and that all of us are survivors

living through the storm, even when we do not feel

any stronger. We learn to live through

another night, realizing there is green

under the ice, and then we grow

in our compassion, in spite

of the wind of a hurricane.

We are all survivors.

    1. Thank you, yes! It is true that the storms can help us to feel alive. Sometimes they are painful and terrible but we can still grow and learn! Peace to you my friend.
