Compassion

Everyday disconnect enveloped her

In emptiness and confusion,

the meaning of a life slowly dying

that is, until the hard edges softened

and she recognized the beauty in herself,

in everything she viewed around her.

 

 

No longer alone being a woman

false starts became new beginnings,

quietly she understood

her feelings were a good thing

 

The sound of butterflies

is compassion calling home the light
