Forgiving the Wind

In the face of the storm
we hunker and pray
for calm.

We take each day as it comes.
Even during the harshest winter
we call out to spring

knowing it will happen.
Knowing the cold will remember
our bones

brittle and sore
our hearts scarred
and still hope never dies.

We are born to survive
never a doubt about it.
Here to beyond, we ascend.

Summer squall or tsunami
we learn early on to praise the sun
and forgive the wind.
