Her Lighthouse: A poem for the one who needs support


The depths of her surfacing emotions are oceanic — her current joys tide

in and out

as she gasps for air —

fresh air.


She seeks the sea for a sign of sympathy,

but its life boat is lofty likewise.


Your faulty savior is no match to the Sailor,

but ought not you to give grace in divine reflection?


Who can compare

midst this thin air —

dense error —

billowing a wave to the willow

that weeps.

Break through her darkness;

reel her to safety,

to security, to home,

to peace.
