Other Side

envision

a grounding spire

absorbing

breaking down the components

releasing

feeding roots with torn edges

remembering

what it was like to be lightening

Pep Talk

It is odd

the reflections sleep gives

our tiny alternate realities

that are so much more real

for just being our own

it is beautiful

the signs we give ourselves

through drowsy contemplations

tired feet and cookies for dinner days

after true work

it is terrifying

contemplating difficult things

on the edge of our dreams

deciding on the carrot

flailing down a path

take joy in the mistakes

do not fear skinned knees

show off the scars to your love

show yourself you mean it

My Day

i may not be able to travel the world

i can visit installations of other places

i may not be able to speak all languages

i can learn about linguistics, french, korean

i may not be able to eat food on the streets of another country

i can find places here to sample, try my hand at recipes unfamiliar

i may not be able to travel the world right now

i can learn about it in the meantime

i can change the may nots in i dids

one little step at a time

 

Fearful Things

death is not a fearful thing

it is the balance

the counter weight to life

one without the other

would be very hard to comprehend

grief is not a fearful thing

it is the balance

the counter weight to bliss

beautiful in it’s own way

allowing pain and joy to exist

simultaneously

numbness is sometimes a scary thing

sometimes a day’s blessing

allowing the soul quiet rest

an emotional nap, if you will

today is not numb

today is not tired

today is feeling

feeling is not a fearful thing

it can be daunting

difficult messy swaths

but within it lies healing

it is where bliss hides
