A WAy To Heal-Quatern


He picked up his pen and began to write
As the full moon gave its ambient light
Days gone after dealing their brutal  blow
The tears and the words began to flow

His anguish hidden in the cover of the night
He picked up his pen and began to write
At last the dam broken, a profound release
In writing his sorrow , finding some peace

Called to the owl as he aimlessly wandered
The fate of generations he quietly pondered
He picked up his pen and started to write
And with the dawn his heart took flight

He kissed their stones and let them go
Someday beside them a rose might grow
Hoping tomorrow may again bring delight
He took up his pen and began to write.


note...in some Native American culture
 the owl is a symbol of death

    Really special Barbara. I kind of got lost in it: it was so compelling. The repetition of picking up the pen to write is very effective.

    Very nice tribute to the cathartic aspect of writing. I especially liked the reference to the owl as the silent specter of death's inevitability.
