Delightful Dying Light

From those uncertainties

to this freedom of speaking safely

of all the ways that a heart has made

though fearful; beating through battles

even when roads uneven faltered and forsook the path—

when time and again your soul was altered

Here in the afterword

in these breaths after

defending all the precious left to who you are


Oh delightful dying light!

Oh colours aflame

washing over with purpose

finally reborn from pain…
