counted joys

moonlit

unencumbered
she walked through gardens gilded by  moonlight
danced with the jasmine, heavy and fragrant
and sang songs of longing to the stars

unencumbered
she lived her life not in yesterday’s shadows
but in promises borne of grief
and jeweled tears of sorrow

and thus she dreams awake
