Evergreen

mourning illuminates my texture
 
I want to believe in you
 
inhaling senses sacred spaces
 
I want to believe in me

      ago my father’s
      last christmas my wife
      was 3 months pregnant
      ~
      my father died 2 months later
      my wife delivered a stillborn boy
      ~
      I’ve learned
      true beauty and happiness
      is never eternal
      joy can’t mask real loss and pain
      ~
      being in nature
      soothes me, relaxes me
      helps reconcile my reluctance
      to cry
      accept
      be still
      move
      forward
      ~
      I’m still grateful for life’s joy and beauty
      I want to believe in myself and life
      I’m continually growling, I’m evergreen
