All You Were Before— #ThinkOfAPoem

Today is National Poetry Day.  I thought I’d join in and post a short poem and an image. This year’s theme is “Remember.”

Full Moon - Photo by Marg HerderWhen all you were before

Becomes all you are again

And all that sings the silent loss

In halting voice begins.

Then will the moon light press your heart

(though night obscures your skin)

To reach your hands, release her

And heal the child within.
