Woman inside Bird by Yuko Hosaka
My heart is not calm, but the prompt on the "Daily Post" page is the word "calm."
I found this wonderful poem by Jane Kenyon, and had to post it on this page, too:
Notes from the Other Side
By Jane Kenyon, 1947 - 1995
I divested myself of despair
and fear when I came here.
Now there is no more catching
one’s own eye in the mirror,
there are no bad books, no plastic,
no insurance premiums, and of course
no illness. Contrition
does not exist, nor gnashing
of teeth. No one howls as the first
clod of earth hits the casket.
The poor we no longer have with us.
Our calm hearts strike only the hour,
and God, as promised, proves
to be mercy clothed in light.
