'What does not return?'

This poem was first published in The Sacred Feminine: Open Skies Poetry Collection on 28th September 2021


Past pain

Liberation is at hand

Balance regained

Life begins

Sunshine brightens cloudless sky


My heart sings its song of joy

Feet dancing through brilliant hours

I thrill to life

And what it brings


A poet’s words

Sounding out on page

Voice rings loud and strong

Each syllable swelling

Flooding the ears


Life’s rhythms

In thrumming waves

Spinning… spinning
