In the wee hours of the night, long past twilight, I hover. Like the coward I am, I come late at night. Seeing some form of peace in my children is all I need. The only form of reentry I can manage.

I always begin this journey with Hope. Her…

As the sun begins to set

I’m shedding my old skin

Like a snake in the grass

Slithering its tongue

What will this new life expose

Did you experience challenges in 2020 too

Is there something we can actually do

your laugh
your touch
