Notre Dame✝︎

Darkness

Engulfing fire

Surrounds

All-encompassing

 

Hearts bleeding

Stopped beating

 

How much longer

Until the end

 

Hours

Into ashes

 

Disbelief

To despair

 

Powerless

Just watch

 

It burn

Burning

Burned

 

God left us

Broken

 

Once upon a time…

Birthday

Calm, in preparation for the arrival of others. Perhaps that’s what maturity means.

Distracted in growing up. Transition to another form of excitement.

Of life. Beyond the day.

When did we grow up to carry the shoulders that once carried us? I asked when my maternal Grandfather died.

People are born in the same way. But it is the way people die that says something about someone’s life.

Let us cherish every day, and every person, in our life and beyond, for it is a life worth living. Beyond this day.
