tiny moments of peace

did you know
that if you put a penny
in the tulip water
the flowers will open and close
instead of flopping over after two days

place them in a mason jar on the windowsill
overlooking the subzero yard
listen to wordless music
alone in the house
feel a sense of accomplishment
for carrying on
through these days and nights
of change, survival, growth
pain and beauty so intermingled
you’ve stopped trying to understand
the difference

acceptance comes in tiny moments of peace
peace comes every morning
in the form of the sun
