Still Life?

Still life

after all these disappointments–after all this pain.

Gale force life knocked me off my feet, and I close my eyes

tightly

so as not to see.  But  I still feel.

I feel the cuts and abrasions, grief warring with peace,

black tangling with rosy light–and

still with all of it, I land sure-footed, and

still there is life.

———-

Attention, all! See the marvels of God!
    He plants flowers and trees all over the earth,
Bans war from pole to pole,
    breaks all the weapons across his knee.
“Step out of the traffic! Take a long,
    loving look at me, your High God,
    above politics, above everything.”    ~~Psalm 46: 8-10 (The Message)
