Today, while on a walk
I saw grief and imagination
ahead of me, at a steady pace,
I never knew they had even met
but obviously they had with the
stories they were telling each other.
As I approached, they invited me to
walk with them
as we made another lap around.
There I stood, one on each side,
as they shared with me their stories–
and listened intently to mine.
I felt my heart open as we
reached half way, my vision stretched
to see the connections in the blurry spaces.
When we finished our lap,
I wished them the best, as they told me
they would each see me soon.
I turned toward home
with my soul transformed.
