Who is she?

 

On the wings of pain…

Crying out in grief
and then begging for grace
I came home
sat at my easel
still angry
questioning the universe’s
choices for me
I set my ipod to play
early rock and roll

I began to paint
her face
and then her shoulders
took shape
I smudged and reworked
her eyes snd nose
just a dash of black
here and there
she appeared

Who is she?
where did she come from?
grief? anger? grace?
on the wings of pain
a beloved dying friend
told me…and
on the wings
of unconditional love
she appeared
