Poem, Brighter by Grace, 1-12-12

Separate and safe from the old harmful ways
surreal encounters from near the dark grave
showing us mirrors showing us life
showing us how we would want as a wife
a true caring angel
a true sharing soul
a true philanthropist
filling our bowl
filling our cups with
remembrance of life
before we were jaded
and plotting to knife
those who wronged us
those who have strayed
those who have banished us
those who have gave
contrast and meaning
chaos betrayed
unexpected though not unwelcome
meaning leaks in and truth isn't stunted
life sprouts from the murkiest place
hope isn't tarnished but brighter by grace.

--EVE Featherstone
