a glimpse of light

They walk back
to their yard in
a straight line.
One asks, why
are you carrying
thorns? One
innocently laughs.
Crossing through
the gate, silence
envelopes my ears
save the birds, a
few whos. Minutes
pass before they are
back inside our fence,
playing house with many
rooms. The boy says this
house will not have any
rooms. One girl says,
you know she has
wood in her butt crack
& they all burst open
their lips wide, giggling
before returning home.

To listen to these kids today & any time they’re outside, brings heaven closer than the sadness the last few months. Their openness & care for each other reminds me how God is toward me, all of us. Blows me away. It’s so beautiful.
