Learning Curves

Image from little women 1949

It is the lows in life
That teach us how
To recognize the highs
And love’s surprise hellos
That make bearable
Its good-byes

It is the cold, blue winter
That sweetens
And warms spring-gold
And it is life’s losses
That opens our eyes
To what we hold

We drink the salt
Of sorrow’s tears
But then after
It is with humble gratitude
We taste
