The Day After, We Still

The Day After, We Still

Feast on possibilities.
Let everyone and everything
reach up toward heaven,

breach the clouds, breathe in
clear air, laugh a little —
give deep thanks for such

grand, expansive views.

Then, with bits of chagrin,
turn toward home again,
packing all the clarity

and charity you can carry
inside, back down
to this fractured earth

where we amend.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
