finding residual blessings

  Poetry Prompt- April 5, 2011

Against the intangible
purple-blue wall
a collection of palms hold a family portrait.




They are bent in surrender holding-
Rigid lines compliant
placed by a lenient paint brush.
Just an old map faintly fading-
outlining where I used to live.
Unused blessings linger on a map without creases.
Found belonging,
and wandering is easy within the open palm.
Reaching to remember and pulling the palm close.
Dust falls as invisible grace.
Sturdy flexibility this fragile place 
                 between
Where I was and what I am.
