A Safe Space
Sunshine streams through windows.
Lovely light offers a promise of things to come.
Trees, leafless still, speak of the season outside.
Birds busy themselves flying to and fro
Intent on preparation for their nests,
They sing as they go, urgently signalling danger.
Traffic slips by leaving its echo.
House sounds. Kitchen clatter and song,
Bedroom doors banging on distant landings,
Front door signalling comings and goings,
Footsteps tread the stairs.
The business of the day.
In a far away room a voice gently confesses
The pain and anguish of a life.
A heart broken, a soul shattered,
Calm acceptance of truth and torment.
Grace and mercy, tenderness and love offered.
Comfort received and spirit restored.
