The Sunday Poet: Linda Maria Steele

Tending a Tender Heart 

In the end all we can really do is make a way for ourselves inside of ourselves.

We can wish and hope and pray things will turn out a certain way. And yet, all we have are the birds that call to us at dawn, the glimmer of light we notice at water's edge or the admiration we feel toward the rising moon.

If we're patient enough and remember to love our heart with our own tender hearts, that may be just enough to take us all the way home.
