Breakthrough

Breakthrough

It’s a long and desolate road.
I think it’s always been so.
Such a desolate road to travel
before the brightness ahead,
the light after desolation
when the sun is freed
from its winter shackles.
Such a desolate road to travel
waiting,
hoping,
searching for the brightness,
the light after desolation
when the sun breaks through
to nurture and feed
the earth again
next year.
