Regeneration

tears weeping
shoulders stooping
time to sleep
time to rest

shedding the shouldered burden
fading into compost
feeding the garden of life
regeneration & rejuvenation

weeping
stooping
melting
resting

tired of holding face to sun
departing for a season
may others carry brightness now
regeneration & rejuvenation

inspired by christine's poetry party.

so lovely lucy, "tired of holding face to sun, departing for a season" speaks to me in the deepest way.

I love "may others carry brightness now". It seems to me like a relay race: others continuing to take the baton forward while we rest.

funny (but not surprising) that you mention a relay race, since i have physically been doing that this week.
