a year of living alone
where the bitter and the sweet greeted one another each morning
where i found myself in a cage of bones
yet i also found the courage
to open my heart and heal
now the sun grows closer...
smiling through the prayer flags
my emptied out heart
has let the songbirds in...
i have new wings
and am learning new songs
spring brushes softly against my cheek this day
a fragrant breath
i whisper a sacred vow to myself
and let the sunlight in...
