Fiona's Birthday Poem

she speeds halfway across the world
to
     slow
           down
to take inventory
to rethink, to reclaim. to rejoice
vivid colours, rich fragrance, warm sunshine, warmer smiles
only happen for fractions of days also filled with
confusion, loneliness, fatigue, frustration
everything layered
           heaped
           a disarray
but nothing we would trade (on most days)
knowing in our very cores that we are young enough,
                                       bold enough,
                                       strong enough,
to survive and celebrate in alternating breaths
to feel the pulse of a continent between our hearts beats
to etch the experience within our cores
and then speed on home again
