day 51

towering tree heavy with tiny fruit mandarin oranges hanging like bangles off its many branches populating its leaves like delicious ornaments waiting to be collected and feasted upon instead, it’s bounty is left to rot or poached by squirrels 2.20.17

day 50

in dreams i float buoyant in tranquil water river grass tickles as i pass by the sun it warms while the water cools i count the clouds up in the sky 2.19.17

day 49

my bindings loosened over time of past regrets unseen mistakes skin rubbed raw from holding back the air it stung as i unlace thrust of change squeezed my breath my life took on a faster pace as i moved past what i thought i would never have to face 2.18.17

summer (day 48)

expansive heat of summer supple muscles stretching long strides peppered with new color birds announcing in a song sun stays late to light our play barbecues flavor the air sand and shells come inside traveling on skin that’s bare smiles feature more than frowns arms more likely open wide love soon buds…

day 47

i walk amongst the towering trees whose limbs extend like lamenting mothers i brace against the icy breeze the sun shines through, a forsaken lover these times they twist and turn about a winding walk that leads to home forgotten fears can bloom to doubt while I embrace the yet unknown 2.16.17
