The funeral pyre for straw men

Failure made me stronger

Pain made me kinder

Sadness gifted me compassion

Grief gave me wisdom

All of these feelings

Which people strive to avoid

I welcome in

They fill the hollows, flesh me out

Burn the straw men within

Humble me

Again and again

Header photo: mine from awhile ago – a storm was coming – everything looked very dramatic – it was messy, even a little scary but the rain grew some grass, caused renewal to the landscape – certainly worth a bit of short term thunder and lightning 🌩️🫶🏻💥❤️
