January 10th

January 10th


Let this day rain on you

hard and heavy with big,

fat drops that fall like

Gabriel’s tears and

deliver unto you

a message of hope.

Let a wild wind rip away

the mud-caked dust of despair

and leave you raw,

so sunlight can

singe all that hurts and

let new growth begin.

Let quiet calm halt time

and keep March away, for now.


Here in this moment,

rage within but

stand still.

Fearless protector,

listen deeply and be comforted

as the universe echoes

the sound of your soul and whispers

these words from the vast beyond–

I am well.
