Further and Further

written by: Fotoula Reynolds


I watch as shadows
Spill down your
Shoulders and even
In a heavy overcast
Grief-filled sky the
Clouds dissolve into
Nothing more than
Distant worries
Drifting further and
Further away

A sliver of sunshine
Peeks into the
Window and shines
Through the curtains
Like a small miracle
Tugging on the hem
Of something reassuring

Peace exists in the
Softness of your chest
It’s there I’ve heard
Your butterfly wing
