Grief Silted Memories

.
.
It will be ever worse
Until with great
Sighs of relief
Guilt stagnant river dams fall down
And grief silted
Memories flow to the sea
Storm destroyed barrier islands
Will appear slowly restored
Mangroves entwining roots
Anchoring tomorrow’s hope
Our Mother’s circadian cleansing
Tides shall reveal reborn
Our own renewal
