Rain
Plays
At
Washing away
The dirt of life
One drop
At a time
Then
Builds
In to
Torrents


That
Stream
While
Being
Pushed
Down and sideways
By
Gusty
Directionless winds
Forcing
The wetness
To reach
Unseen places
Rarely touched
With
The purity
Of
Liquid
Freshness

How was it love
When
I rarely
Put myself in your path
To encounter
The warmth
That
Radiated
From
The glow
Of
Your presence

How was it love
When
Without
My awareness
Your wholeness
Became broken
And
I
In oblivion
Failed to sense
That
You
Breathe
No more

How was it love
When
I lost you
Never knowing
That
You
Ceased to cling
To this world
As
It raced
Through its orbit
Around
A star
Whose brightness
Could not
Outshine
You

Walking
On
The shady side of the street
Cools me
As
The clip of my stride
Quickens
Pumping
Blood
Through
My body
At
A rate
That
Would cause
Other liquids
To boil

While
The leaves
Of
Canopying branches
Fan
My head
As
They are stirred
By
The same breezes
That
Dance
Between
My thoughts

Not exactly
A yellow brick road
But
These stones
Are
Littered
With
Gold buds

That
Have fallen
In sacrifice
To make way
For
The full foliage
That
Will follow
And
Sway
Above
Us
In the glow
Of
Warm
Golden
Days

We must
Hold on
To
Optimism
Even
When
Hurdles are erected
Along
The path

That
Routes
Us
To
The fulfillment
Of
Our
Individual destinies
Which
Are
All
Linked
By
A collective desire
To
Succeed

Nature’s bells
Ring
Drawing
Our attention
To
The awakening
Of
The world
From
Its slumber


As
A new season
Arrives
To cast colour
Up on
What
Lay
Hidden
But
Now
Bursts forth
With
Blue brightness
As
Each chime
Spreads
The news
Of
Change

Time
Has
Bonded me
To each of you
Since
The starting line
When
The first trigger
Prompted us
To spring forward
With actions
To change
The world
Around
Our bodies


And
The bodies
With
Which
We will collide
As we travel
Between
Life’s challenges
Boldly
Conquering obstacles
With
The knowledge
We have collected
In preparation
For
Our individual journeys

Time
Has
Bonded me
To each of you
And
I am confident
The great distances ahead
Will
Never
Be crossed
Alone
Because
Even in separation
We
Are
Together

Inspired by the women who have been my strongest supporters during the past three years and who will be with me every day for the rest of my life because of the friendships they planted in my heart.
