Death & Hope

News of a friend’s dog passing
A drawer falls on my foot
Broken antique bowls
A burnt cake

How quickly we fight for a faith that only reflects positivity
When the wilderness
And mystery of life
Is lived in

Shards of glass not to be put back the same
Well-meaning intentions to celebrate

The resurrection is hope only because before preceded death

Death and hope
Found in an eternally sacred
Moving reverently
Hope and death
Death and hope.
