Just Around the Bend

Photo and text by Sister Jon Julie Sullivan, SNDdeN

Just around the bend is
how each new day begins.
In many ways we are simply on a path
Cleared and opened by those who are ahead.
What grace there is in appreciating them
And hoping someone knows how we were
Part of the road makers once upon a time.
Even when the buildings have closed
There is still evidence of paths
We have made in one another's hearts.
We are not alone.
