Failing Human

I don't know how 
to make sense of the stunning white butterfly with slate speckles landing on the azure delphinium 
a flash of heaven here in the piedmont
while the truth of 41 dead in Istanbul 
239 injured 

sinks in,
me wondering if there are 239 of anything in this small garden,
some beauty against that terror.


I don't know how 
to make sense of Georgia
who purred and danced round my legs as I buried the hen who ruled the coop.


I don't know how 
to make sense of the beautiful and broken
so often delivered together
but that is this day
"and many more yet" my heart whispers.
