More of the Same

The sky is the same shade of blue

The grass is the green it’s always been

The highs have made way for the low

At times I’ve had nowhere else to go

So I retreated inside

And allowed myself to grow

My wings strengthened

Increasing my resolve

And now when I lurch

Into a future unknown

I know the winds will carry me

I will not fail or fall

My skies are fetching me

I lift my arms

To go alone.


A Breath of Air

I saw the morning sun reflected in the waves that rolled towards me.

I felt the strength of the rays as they landed on my delicate skin.

The salt exfoliated my toes and feet and legs and thighs.

I surrendered to the water’s might as it overtook my height.

I submerged and allowed the wave to wash over me.

Helpless I was at the mercy of a power greater than I.

I let go and when i resurfaced and could take another breathe,

I breathed and knew in that moment

That is all I need to do.

Grains of Sand

How do you stop time?

If only I knew

To capture each moment

And never let go

I would stand in the sea

With my toes in the sand

I would watch the birds fly

As they roam the blue skies

I would feel the cool air

As the sun disappears

And watch the stars rise

With the moon and her light

I would capture each moment

And never let go

If time were not grains

Through our fingers and toes

Painting my Heart

I used to write poetry
A few lines a day
My mind always racing
With so much to say

I struggled with moods
They always seemed low
So I started a dosage
My doctor said so

My life changed for good
I could smile once again
But my words dried up
With the sun after rain

I discovered new worlds
A brush and some art
The painting began
I colored my heart
