Hi ReKnewers. Terri Churchill here. I’m the editor for this blog. Normally I keep a pretty low profile, but Greg asked me to share something I wrote this past weekend. I’ve been navigating a very emotional time in my life lately, and my hope is that some of you who find yourself in a similar place will be helped just a little. Or maybe you’ll just feel a little less alone.
passing through circles
of weddings and aging and death
i can’t tell where this one ends and
this one begins.
i see my son, my baby
reaching out to his lovely one
and grasping a hand that is not mine
and i decide that i love her too.
i see my mother
reaching out to memory
and grasping things from long ago
and i decide that she’s wiser than me.
i see my brother
reaching out to god
and grasping for something beyond this world
and i decide to someday ask the way
these circles cross paths
in ways i cannot comprehend.
i reach out for something less dizzying
and grasp for something more linear
then decide to walk the intersections
as best I can.
