For joy written upon the red wall
the colors red, yellow, black and brown
morning hugs and smiles
warm cups of coffee
artists of all ages
dinner tables full of laughter, giggles, sweet scents, stories and life
the blood birthed from love united running deep within my veins
the grace to say good-bye, gasping for air, surrounded by ashes
the same grace helping me to say hello to the breaking forth of a new creation, fighting to be born
Ciona… sister, best friend and sojourner.
I am thankful.
