some mornings

seem more gentle than others,
despite the storm.

despite the words that are lost
to sound of winds
battering. windows rattling.

we spoke, all comes clear
in time, with waiting, baiting
breath, fortitude, cups of tea.

they will light lanterns, burn fires
for the darkness, while some
mornings rise gently.

the third of november.
