goddess #21

Gray day
wet snow
stillness of New England winter.
Some 2600 kilometers south,
in tropic heat
bodies decompose,
crushed, smothered.
Hundreds of thousands lost as earth flexed muscle and bone,
no longer steady or firm.
My heart shatters into a hundred thousand shards
that pierce my flesh,
transforming into light
scattering in a billion directions.
Finally, only emptiness remains.

May our hearts be open to the suffering and the joy.
