Tears & tears

One washes,

One rips.


The little dog yelps and barks joining

The tantrum of holy righteous anger and wounded inner child

Roiling in my belly.

No cuddling comforting

Therapy Dog is She –

But fierce in Her song.

We keen together.


A day started in sunshine

Can end in storms.

The sun will rise again,

But the world will still have turned.


Be thankful

Even in grief.
