After The Storm

after the storm

Guess I should have known
benediction lingers
between light and shadow
between elation and fury
urging explicit emotion
to rest as the embers
of hellfires cool

And like the wind
caressing tender petals
after that fierce storm
redemption waits
as the last wildflower
loses its tremble and
turns to face the sun

soaring on the silver wings
of guardian angels
renames fate, reconfiguring
every last star until
the path to forgiveness
is crystal clear

oh, how love shines
even after epic battles
