Here’s a snippet from the first poem in HGaE.
Entitled Wintered-Over for the brittle, achy, numb, wintry emotion of my whole soul when I was struggling the most.
Infertility is a sudden and subtle jolt of pain + grief. It took a lot for me to actually be really honest with myself and God about the state of myself and my belief in His goodness/kindness. God felt mean to me. I said the things I meant without filtering the reality of my pain and my perceptions of God. I learned to trust God with my vulnerability, who I really was without “spiritual speak.”
I lashed out toward God. God stayed. And so did I.
But I had a lot to process.
The poetry in Hope Gives a Eulogy takes you through the cyclical emotions of questioning, grieving & healing.
While I’m purposefully keeping most of the poems offline, Wintered-Over remains the exception which you can find as an instagram reel via @sierravfpoetry.
On a beautiful side note,
Spring is on its way & in some ways, it’s already here.❤ Flowers truly put a richness back into my life when life felt like nothing at all, and my husband brought me these flowers, and took photos especially for me to use for my blog.
Which reminds me of one of the love poems in Hope Gives a Eulogy.
So, the story lives on.❤
