a hopeful song

Grateful for the flooded heart
That weeps, when punctured,
Happy tears
Grateful for the fragile disposition
Tenderness teaching
The wound how to heal
Grateful for the silent stars
The interminable sea
The rippling dark
The hopeful tent propped
Against the wind and the rain
Bracing for the downpour  
Singing on the waves.
