April shorts – 11

I’m not talking about the “bummer my team lost” kind of disappointment,
because the team is still practicing, looking forward to next year.

I’m talking about the caterpillar-never-becoming-a-butterfly kind of loss,
hope totally hijacked.

It doesn’t mean there won’t be more butterflies,
just not this one,
this time.

How do you rebound from disappointment like that?

With time,
with friends,
with knowing that because you birthed hope in the past,
it is possible again.

With love,
helping you see the caterpillars all around you.
