Retreat and Renewal

By Georgina Dietz

I hear the honking of the geese
And the sweet sound of rustling trees

With the hum of city sounds
Encompassing and confirming
The flow of life.

I am here.
Now.
In the shelter of trees.

Craneleith is
Welcoming me
Again.

A sacred space
In a troubled city
Where stories of mercy are shared,
And cries for justice blend
With the caw of the crow.

I am here.
Present.
Silent.
And open.
Listening.
Learning.

Finding hope
and sustenance
for the
journey ahead.

(March 2022)
