Oh Beauty

On February 28, 2012, I wrote this poem in my journal and posted it, with little editing, on my first blog, Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.  http://www.ellenolinger.wordpress.com

Oh Beauty

after times of loss
great worry
fatigue
I want to feel
beauty
kindness
my own art again

I was sad
perhaps numb

oh beauty

the line of a poem
a Psalm, a song,
a kind note

that breaks
my heart open
again

and I find poems

Wendy Brightbill, a mixed-media artist, also speaks of these times and places in life–of healing.  Two of her prints are in this room.  http://www.agirlandherbrush.com
