Resilience (Tree Talk: Ep 4)

In my heart

I know it is time

for next steps

a moment of silence to

catch breath, gather thoughts, stillness –

show must continue

doubt, regret

they come, no ending

let rain pours

why not befriend them – sometimes

we come to unpaved roads, but

treading through we must

  3. What a glorious photo… the trees!! Your shadorma sequence spoke to me. I love the idea of embracing the negative ideas… sometimes we just have to do that. ❤
