And yet

Stephen Chinnock

17 December 2020

After so much time and turmoil
New horizons found
In a new house
Different routines

A garden planted
To replace the orchard lost
Living within the sound
Of a beautiful beach

So many blessings counted
In a difficult year
Finding solace in verse
Others joining in

New connections found
In a community of hurt souls
Stretching out hands
To begin again

But as the anniversary arrives
The fire is still present
The fear still real
The heart still broken!
