were a test
We put down roots, nurtured each other, picked up the pieces.
Wake, work, sleep was the mantra of the days that brought,
seemingly impossible, tasks that were attempted, repeated,
New, tender leaves grew,. Brazen branches flung embraces.
A cloak of forbidding foliage, protected our daily lives.
Dead wood was cut out, a fire was re kindled.
Light beamed in through the spaces created.
Kindnesses, gentle as kisses, brought the blossom.
