reminders to be kind...

i am returning to kindness
a place where I am strong in my softness.
i will start by kissing all of my scars and washing then in rain
collecting dust from long journeys off
my feet.
the way they carry weariness from crossing rivers that should have had bridges.
I will return to build crossing paths over waters that reminded me to be kind.

.

I woke up this morning
to tell you the sun has risen,
to say that the mornings
are still in bloom like fire 
lilies carpeting a burnt sky. 

I woke up this morning
to tell you the yellow headed
blackbirds have decorated
the pinetree outside again
and whenever they dance
they turn into the eyelets
of a large peacock tail
spread just for us. 

I woke up this morning
to say that my heart still 
feels empty but my soul 
complete like the full moon 
in a cloudless sky,

that nothing has changed 
since you’ve been gone, 
that the sun still rises 
and the trees still spread 
their wings and that my heart 
is still full of stars. 

I woke up this morning
to tell you I am healing,
that with every burnt sky
a new flower grows in its 
place, petal by petal,

to tell you that I am full
of a song I still don’t know
the words to yet but
it is coming, and one day
I will sing it for you.

It's ok….

It's ok you know,
to be carried now and then,
strength too needs a rest.

a wave...

Imperfect things are always—
it seems—a wave
of some wand away
from perfection.

unexpected...

You were so unexpected; like the discovery of a new planet.

It is hard...

It is hard to not feel broken
when it is always quiet enough
to hear your pieces rattle.

calm...

"if
the ocean 
can calm itself, 
so can you.
we 
are both 
salt water 
mixed with 
air."

carrying on….

Sometimes, carrying on, just carrying on, is the superhuman achievement.
