Crows, leather shoes, inner strength.


Tree branches flailing in the wind. 

Crows claiming territory. 

The river when it’s in a hurry. 

The sky thundering about a coming storm. 

The earth when she shakes. 

Leather shoes dancing over a hardwood floor. 

The automobile horn under an angry hand. 

The chattering squirrel. 

The orca lowing in the deep. 

Things and beings speak. 

Ssh. 

Listen.

Reach inside yourself for strength. It’s there. 

Your strength is in your own heart, 

it always has been right there. 

Hold on to your faith in life, 

in your own humanity. 

Believe in yourself. Keep hope. 

Love and life will go on.
