And Simply Drinks

by | Apr 13, 2017 | Books

We all experience difficulty in our lives. I wrote this Xoem® as part of The Alchemy of Illuminated Poetry® process in the midst of pain.
It reminded me that there is always another way of seeing things. And though I may not be able to change the pain itself, I can change my experience of it. And that can make all the difference.

And Simply Drinks

Flowers bow
Beneath the driving rain,
But one looks up and simply drinks.
This, too, is for the good, she thinks.
She’s not immune to pain
But thrives, somehow.
