WordSpa Photo Update (Posted to Facebook on March 19, 2017 at 03:14PM)

In the Face of Splendor

Take your grief seriously
Become the ash urn
For the vanishing wilderness
Despair for the Dolphins
Make your own salt water
for the disappearing marshes.
The silent Earth is listening.
Be called to outrageous acts of despair

And then,
every now and again,
In the face of splendor,

Turn towards it.

– Kristy Hellum

Thanks to Jan Falls of Heart Poems for calling this poem to my attention. Thanks to Kim Lewin for allowing her beautiful photograph to be used here.
