        Power in the everyday #ThisIsFostering #FCF20

        A young girl's hands knead bread dough. This shows the every day grounding activities that bring healing to children in foster care.

        This time of being shut away

        Has brought to mind the every day

        The fragile joy, so quick to wane

        Which glimmers softly in the mundane


        The world has shrunk, it seems to strain

        Against the pain it must contain

        The children press their palms to glass

        Interred with thoughts that cannot pass


        But power lies within these walls

        Its whisper louder than the squalls

        You’ll find it in the side by side

        Needle thin,  infinitely wide


        It’s present in the sticky dough

        In hands that knead and stretch and throw

        A glimpse you’ll see in pungent soil

        Where brand new shoots start to uncoil


        It bubbles in the pancake batter

        punctuates the aimless natter

        screams softly from scarlet brushstrokes

        gladdens in the golden egg yolks


        A force that jostles in the board game

        Nudging out all sense of shame

        Winking in the silver foil

        Sighing as the carrots boil


        It’s in a splinter on soft flesh

        Or threaded in a beaded mesh

        It tinkles from the homemade charms

        Head cocked proudly, folded arms


        This, it says, is where you find

        That thing rejoining body and mind

        The healing balm that comes with touch

        And deftly wipes away so much


        It’s laid bare in the strengthing bonds

        Rustling in the ribboned fronds

        It’s woven in the silken plaits

        Stands proud in homemade paper hats


        It’s in the mundane every day

        The things we thought they’d thrown away

        It’s in the inner child that pleads

        And weeps and laughs and shakes and bleeds


        It’s in the brave attempts to teach

        And there when tears begin to breach

        The void between the old and new

        Shards. Made whole. With grit and glue


        It’s in the you, the them, the us

        It’s in the quiet times and the fuss

        In the calm and in the bluster

        This is what it is to foster…..
