Spring, then Summer will come. Celebrate!

Friday, January 21, 2011

As I age, hopefully with grace, it's words like these that give me comfort and confidence in my coming years. I am that daughter and I am becoming.

Ceres Looks at the Morning

I wake slowly. Already
my body is a twilight: Solid. Gold.
At the edge of a larger darkness. But outside
my window
a summer day is beginning. Apple trees
appear, one by one. Light is pouring
into the promise of fruit.

Beautiful morning
look at me as a daughter would
look: with that love and that curiosity:
as to what she came from.
And what she will become.
