Laundry

You made this bed of nails I lie in.

A skewered butterfly,

addition to your

collection,

I swallowed hook, line, and linen.

But this is 2016.

It’s time

to change

the sheets.

1,000 raindrops on lily-white skin,

1,000 lilies where sorrow has been,

1,000 sorrows are washed by the rain,

After the cleansing, pure joy will remain.

Poem #1,000

In celebration of life, healing, and the joy that comes after the rain!
