I hope your hearts are not waning in the wading of home life as many of us are still being urged to stay home as much as possible. During this time, everything can feel overwhelming, thoughts can feel overbearing, and many other things.
For me, I am slowly, but surely taking this time at home in strides. It’s been beautifully reflective and at other times too reflective where I have to calm the raging wave of over-thinking and calculative processing.
So, here is a poem to help ease the anxious worry some may be feeling.
fireflies are full of life
their flickering signifying
subtle vitality, strength
in each beat of luminescent breath
I’d like to be a firefly
used to a slow and steady flight
learning to light my path
one inch at a time
edging along centimeters
aware of how short living can be
yet how large love looms in view
of my frailness
I wouldn’t waver at uncertainty
I would fly toward wonder,
flap my wings at her whimsy
marveling how even in the thickening
night I am still full of life
