view from my window one afternoon

The sun,

it shines from some mysterious place

illuminating seagulls with calm.

Like tiny bright diamonds they glitter

iridescent like stars

in the cloudy blue.

Hope, it

is something like that. The dreams

that scar our dreams alive, the

breath that keeps humanity even

in a place of healing

balm.

Breathe, the

air expands my chest, a heart

beating again through a courageous lift

reminiscent of paradise –

there is an opening into joy.
