while the age burns
a thousand threads
across the loom;
there's a luck that roofs the room
against the rain that pulls the wheat
into our hands from soil to bread
and back, complete.

Susie Clevinger asks us to "write the words to bring light into your own life or that of another. Whatever the struggle bring the verses to lift the spirit." While this is not normally much in my wheelhouse, I actually happened to be thinking tonight as the rain lashed the house how very lucky I am to be here in this world, breathing, thinking, doing what I love, mostly.
