All we need is one good thing,

A lilting, catapulting fraction of stars,

A memory rising,

A hope just born,

Leading from the mire.

All we need, one fragrant spark,

An errant, spiralling shimmer,

A chrysalis new,

A promise,

Propping broken bones.

All we need, a raging stream,

A cauldron, a seething,

A forge incandescent,

A storm,

Focusing fractured beams.

All we need is one good thing.

All we need, a stranger’s word,

A smile, a glance,

A root between trees,

An ancient arch,

Spanning depths unknown.

All we need is one good thing,

A brace for this moment,

A staff for this day,

A seed just sown,

Changing everything.
