Ritual – Honoring Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Evening falls. Shadows creep from corners. Stillness hovers over home and mind. It’s easier to grieve in darkness.
Hurricanes are lifted. Taper wicks are trimmed. The hiss of the lighter breaks the silence. Flames flicker and dance.
The mantel is aglow. My heart answers. Warmth reaches into the quiet.
The ritual of October resides above my hearth. Mourning is met with compassion. Grief needn’t be carried alone.
