Open arms

A morning thought

The Keeper Of Me

The trill of the mama bird, the building of the nest. I listen and I know her heart.

I am the wandering lost since she left me. She lays in the forest under a grave marker of ash cloth and copper words. Beloved

A small and rowdy pup bites my toes as I walk to the kitchen for sustenance. He will never know my heart is broken. I squat down and he studies me with my finger in his mouth, gnawing.

The light calls me. The day surrounds me. I will chose thankful. I will chose Open
