National Poetry Month: Delicate Strength

memory-2021124_1280



Delicate Strength


Picking among the discarded
through the forgotten bits
the broken pieces of what was
what will ever come again.
A delicate task, fighting tears
trying to stay strong, stoic
and not collapse into puddles
of grief and never-ending sorrow.
