Prompted by my husband's healing love
Mon Mari

Torn from me
Scattered in the bitter winds of Uncertainty
In Pain
Swirled like snowflakes in the perpetual winter of my life.

Then you came
A warm and colorful C├ęzanne in relief
of what I had become.
You rotated my world
away from Winter’s cold grasp
I reveled in the warmth of my first Spring.

Your Love
carried on lavender-scented air
with a hint of wild thyme and the sea
was the magnet that drew me,
all my fragments,
To You

In your presence
I grew Whole again.
