finding grace

finding grace

A Poem by Emily B

Previous Version
This is a previous version of finding grace.



My generous hands

forgot how to pray.

I watched the butterfly

rise on strong winds

hoping that in the opening

and closing

of her silent wings

I might remember.

 

My heart is vacant

it lost all the words

And I've been searching-

some kind of bizarre

Easter egg hunt

for what

I can't name.

 

My knees tremble-

ache-to please again.

But my hands won't remember

and the words won't come back.

I have more and more days like these nowdays~ and so your poem roots in similar soil between the garden of these ribs~

A hope and a dream, these words are an expression of faith it seems, for one feels that they have lost their way, but they still remember that there is a way. The words have been lost, but here they lay…

Great Write!
