Fall, 2017

 

Imperfection

The lack of pretense

A piqued curiosity

Reading something that makes the world more wondrous

Sandy shorelines, riverside trails

Lightning over a field of sunflowers

The drone of a distant train

Uncommonly beautiful sunsets

Uncommonly beautiful sunrises

The scent of a tattered blanket

Music in the middle of the night

Dinner with the right kind of smile

The pull to places no one else sees

Cutting a rose, feeling the sting of its thorns

Meeting new people who are complex, deep, exposed

Feeling like I belong with words

The truth in a dog’s eyes

Licking a spoon

The need to surrender.

Transcendence via Immersion

I sink into the mood.
Meet what’s underneath the
underneath.
Centimeter by centimeter, I
get
used
to
it.
Lie back in the water.
Pretend.
Disappear.
If I have learned anything these days,
it is that. 

The potency of my emotions
winds. me. up.
Ever-so
bitten;
words on the tip of my tongue
taste sharper than I expected them to be.

I run a fingertip along my scars,
multifaceted, deep.
Criss-cross the lines between
sinister and sweet.
Rough with the smooth,
the silent wounds meet;
beautiful, strong,
resilient.
