Still Rising

You made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to set. —Psalm 104:19, NLT

It hasn’t felt all that different yet.

We’ve only just waded into the

lapping waves of 2021,

barely getting our feet wet.

It felt so long getting here —

I think we all let out a collective

breath when the clock finally

struck us to a new year,

maybe a new perspective,

maybe a renewal of hope —

the world is still here, we

are still rising to a beautiful

sun and sleeping under

a glowing globe and twinkle

lights, the trees will leaf,

the flowers bloom, the spring

winds will bring rain for roots,

and we will move through

another year, face what’s new,

reminisce on what’s past, even

finding beauty in what was

a very hard year, a persistent

year, a year that tried us all.
