Wherever you go…

there is comfort in uncertainty

when you are not sure where the waves will take you

salted water supports bodies foreign to its nature

there is delight in not knowing

which wind will take you

buffeting in the dive, ruffled in lazy circles

there is joy in home

finding it is located inside you

a turtle with no shell



when change is hard

look to the sky

no matter the time of day

to find things are indeed okay


when change is hard

look to the earth

feel the world’s mirth

casting out your woes


when change is hard

look to the flame

let it burn the doubts away

eliminating blame

allowing the blossom to stay


when change is hard

look to the sea

leading treasures to the shore

depths expressing, just to be

learning all it’s lore


when change is hard

look to the soul

taking in all the love

having almost learned it’s role

fitted now like a glove


when change is hard

do not give up

take a break, have a snack, do a little dance

drink from the bottom of the cup

mayhap then to find a bit of romance




it is hard

to see

to be seen

to be wanted

for me

not the idea of me

not the story of me

it thrills, chills

to hear

because you are you

to know

and you see me

and you….

like me

this way

that way

anyway that I am

uncensored unfiltered


needed translations


you see through my eyes

what I do not want to hide


I find myself whole
