a hopeful poem about anger

Usually when Bill is out of town for a length of time, I get short on sleep, patience and positive discipline techniques. So this week, I've had occasion to reflect on the edges of rage in parenting.

Today, Christina Springer, a poet and homeschooling mom that I admire posted this poem and it soothed my mommy soul.

a moment
i hope
the rage

turns into a cherry blossom, so
I can brew

wine from sunset ripened fruit.
