Irreconcilable Differences



Light pried under the window shade

carrying memories of yesterday’s pain

and so I began another day

walking among the thistles


I tried to avoid the thorns

that lurked among the ferns

but they always found

my tender spots


Irreconcilable differences

formed the bars of my cage

mocking me with threats

of another failure


Unexpectedly, the quiet voice

of a sunbeam penetrated my void

and as I searched it out

Wisdom revealed herself


A bee sprinkled with pollen

a child’s musical laughter

the brush of a breeze on my cheek

and the glory of a thistle bloom


Then I remembered

secrets once shared

the warmth in your eyes

the dimple I so loved


Dare I focus once again

on those simple delights

as I turn to take the road

called Forgiveness?


What if I even choose

to believe in you?

Perhaps then you too

can notice the sunlight…
