There Is A Difference

There is a difference 
between dropping one's basket,
and gently, purposefully
setting it down;
a difference between 
the mind's unconscious spilling,
and the soul's courageous willing
that her most painful hours 
transform into flowers,
poured out as an offering
to She Who Knows 
how from the darkness 
Everything grows.

One thought on “There Is A Difference

  1. …an offering
    to She Who Knows
    how from the darkness
    Everything grows…

    With the knowledge that She holds us I find my hope… when darkness descends as it often does, to remember that She holds me in heart is a blessing…

    Thank you, dear Sister, for offering this reminder of hope ❤️❤️
