Sometimes life succs. 

So, you grow succulents, 

and they become a facet of peace for you.

Then, life doesn't suck so bad.

hello there
mr. P,
come over here
let us have a cuppa tea
and we
can talk about the weather,
feel the deep warmth of the sun
while i try to suppress the need
to pluck a feather from your train, for fun

Earth Day



 "Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them"
(Psalm 69:34)

Happy Earth Day Friends!

spun in the sun

saw a picture of a swollen sea
pregnant with the deepest hues
it reminded me of that day
when we
deep in love
graced the ocean
 tried not to
sink or swim
just kept my head level
with the sun
the waves tumbled us
around the shore
like something rinsed
that day in summer
long ago
when sun melted hearts to heart
it's where i go
 to rest
- my love-
when the waves
drift us apart

Night   time   surrounds
shallow      vision    and
daisies    wrapped     up
by  the   moon. I  count
sheep  that  so  sweetly
fly        above,    where
dreams   should     twist
and   yearn   but  clocks
tend to tick and talk  too
much   and the   covers
become so  firm.  I
roll  and sigh  and close
my eyes and   by  then
it's      daylights     turn.

if what had been, hadn't turned into what was
i'd have gained 15 lbs
          instead of lost it

in the evenings instead of doing sit ups
i'd be cradling a squirming belly
                 and eating dark chocolate

my brain is void of forward thinking
and sometimes when i see a newborn i cringe
              or run for the bathroom to cry

I know it was just an early miscarriage
just a blastocyst of cells
          but that doesn't mean a small piece of me didn't die

                   somewhere between a pink line and my body telling lies

i'd rather

i'd rather receive a dozen pens & pencils than a dozen roses

flowers wither and then decay

but our love is so much stronger

so if you choose

that you must prove

your love to me with things

gather pens and pencils up

over diamond rings

then i'll scrawl you into a psalm

and wrap you up in words

i'll hold you close

and keep you here

in my heart and verse

Joining Emily today for imperfect prose.
