memories and miracles

the new roads learned
when I needed
to begin again
are beloved old roads

the work of building
a new life in a new place
is now a long-term
memory

the sun rises anew
and the water is
steaming so I know
it is cold still

grateful for the Mystery
of God’s plan and these
quiet weeks . . .
being sure to recover well

yesterday I watched
the light in the yard
and it was easy to
picture the trees green
