yesterday moment

yesterday brought an unexpected gift
a tender visit
with a trembling flower .........

a beautiful young woman
finding her heart
discovering her identity

giving herself permission to stand up
but also to fall

after years and years of being shaped by pain
she is learning how to stretch her arms wide
to lengthen her stride

while at the same time
discovering it is OK to stop doing
and simply be

we had seen each other from afar
over the past few years
but then she called
and asked to come together

and it was a wonderful privilege
to spend some moments with one another

I am not sure what God has in mind
for tomorrow
I am grateful
deeply grateful
for yesterday
