Birdwings

Your grief for what you’ve lost lifts a mirror
up to where you are bravely working.

Expecting the worst, you look, and instead,
here’s the joyful face you’ve been wanting to see.

Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
If it were always a fist or always stretched open,
you would be paralysed.

Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding,
the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated
as birdwings.

A story of wood energy in my life!  I was in a real funk last week when I had been on the computer too long! I felt frustrated and didn’t know what to do!

After a walk in Ashton court, I decided to draw an ash tree as I’m so worried about them  –

I took the drawing into lithography and printed this!

I call it – one in ten
