Northern Sun

The hours and miles

Are no more than a heartbeat

And a mountain

All in the same moment

There is joy

Twined with struggle

And their careful ballet

Is fixed

We cannot separate

Our suffering from our bliss

Nor our triumphs from our failures

Even so

The stumbles

Pose no danger

Until the day arrives

When we no longer

Stand back up – Caroline A. Slee
