Toil

I try to scrape history from stone
reassemble words on vellum –
bravado pretending release

Pick my mentors from amongst
the enlightened, willing osmosis –
ego avoiding blood: grit of change

(Art my own)

IT Takes Grit

Calm belies the storm
dis-ease spawning a flurry
fractured ideas
peppered with glints of hope –
with focus, I too sparkle.

(There have been many instances this week that have tested my grit.
I am learning to harness the good moments and hang on.
Linking up to my weekly challenge: I’m learning... Image my own.)
