Beyond

Today the loss is overwhelming. From grey sky, heavy clouds spit rain. Outside the window a hummingbird lingers attracted by the red geraniums on the sill, the glass separating her from the promise of sweet nectar. She hovers to contemplate the other side and knows it is a place wholly unimaginable without communion. From inside the glass and out, that is what we know.
