Connections: September 11.17

If dark waters reflect light

does hope persist?

Still on owning darkness

compassion must insist.

If I tell you tomorrow

the sun will surely shine

that makes the loss all yours

and not one iota mine.

I have to share the dark

or my words serve only me

my brilliant advice, my platitudes

condescending mockery.

If I can’t feel with you

your grief and your confusion

the light is mere mirage

a cruel and cold illusion.

 

 

 

We have much loss to face this 9.11 — may we face it squarely.
