Fragile Resilience


Fragile Resilience
                    (for Jennie)

You stood for so long,
buffeted by a Wyoming wind,
no desire to be put out to pasture,
yet wounded in a way
that would wear down any soul.

Hearts and hands
extended by those who care
went unanswered,
independence your mantra
and your wounds now ours.

I’ve been away for the past week attending to family matters, but I should be back home by the end of the month. Meanwhile, I get to experience a Wyoming winter.
