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
