Via Dolorosa


Some days, there are no words.
There is only weeping.
And that is also prayer.
And that is also healing.

the circle tightens
but never ends.
We travel the arc of grief.

May our tears water the earth.
Soft rains creating new life,
uprising, green, and nurtured
by our sorrow.

Oh, sweet bird,
sing your song of spring;
lift our hearts on your wings;
carry us to peace.
