Resilience (Day 97)

Resilience is a robin's wing,
a footprint in the sand,
a charcoal sketch drawn loosely,
with a deft touch, 
lace-curtain-patterned sunlight 
on the floor, 

The front porch swing, 
a sky of blowsy clouds, 
the hand you reach for 
in a surging crowd, 
the weight of a tomato 
on its vine. 

Resilience is a garden plot, 
footsteps on a gravel path, 
live music at a party, 
heard from outside,
a cloud of luminescent butterflies.
