The Salvaging

I gather now, the fragments
of our relationship
scattered on the ground.
The storm has moved on
leaving behind a fretful calm
that says:
there will never be peace again.

Weather beaten, windblown
I wander -
picking random pieces
of love and laughter.
anger and frustration
despair and disappointment.

Weak and vulnerable
I lift me and gather me
to myself.
Shattered remnant of
fragile emotional outbursts
grate under my feet.
I gather them too -
lacing them together
into a semblance of order.

I'm recovering.

Each breath, a celebration
of Your Mercy
Each heart beat, a tasbeeh
in Your Praise
The surging red streams, a tawaf
of the Kaaba of my heart
- purified -
so You may reside.
