From darkness, light

I found this beautiful poem online a little while ago and wanted to share, it’s by poet Andrea Gibson:

I know you think this world is too dark to even dream in colour,
but I’ve seen flowers bloom at midnight.
I’ve seen kites fly in gray skies and they were real close to looking like the sunrise,
and sometimes it takes the most wounded wings the most broken things
to notice how strong the breeze is, how precious the flight.

Andrea Gibson
