In medias res…

Snowflower and I are going to start this blog as if we were already in the middle of it, with no introductions, just our work.  So here’s my poem, written by me this past weekend, for today’s post, in light of the coming spring:

Spring Poem

Your soul does not have to perish
like winter’s grey.
Let your grief that is now
wash over you
like the spring rain
that does not judge
but only cleanses away
the past decay.
And in your grief for
departed love, for departed seasons,
for the plain departed,
let yourself find strength
in the knowledge
that your pain
is equal to the weight of your love,
and that all weight
can be changed into energy,
and that all energy
can be burned into life again,
always renewing like the seasons.
