An Anniversary

A poem I posted one year ago today, reprised...

Sisterhood

On the surface it looks distant from me,
Yet a sizable place inside me has been reserved for this devotion.

Rarely a day has passed in so many long months without at least a glimpse into this space.


A prayer breathed into it.

I have wished on stars and lit candles in cathedrals and whispered to God from mountain tops and sandy beaches.

I have read fighting words and words of gratitude and been awestruck and inspired and scared.

It is not distant from me. Not in the ways that matter.

I am a daughter.
I am a sister.
I am, most important of all, a mother.

And so this brings me close and permits me to share in this grief.

My weighted heart reaches out in sorrow.

R.I.P.
