The sign of life.

silhouette of mountains

From this cocoon

I will burst one day

a healed woman

to carry the babies

inside a new dream.

We will walk

toward the seven

mountains again,

no longer in terror

of Time.


Inspired by Toni Morrison: “One looks to history for the feel of time or its purgative effects; one looks through art for its signs of renewal” (from “The Future of Time” in The Source of Self-Regard).

I keep watch and listen, mostly in dark places.
