day 212

i awake to the sun so full of light spilling over into the forgotten nooks, offering its heat like a dry reprieve after days deluged by rain. 7.31.17

day 211

a fallen monarch beautiful in your orange hues, you flutter your wings in defiance even when you have lost your strength to fly. so i resist the urge to keep you as an object to admire, allowing you the dignity to retire alone. 7.30.17

serenity (day 209)

expansive like the ocean, i feel it’s calm, unending horizon slightly wavering; buck and sway gently rippling its serene surface i welcome the waves, frothy and strong rhythmic in their arrival towering as they approach, in ominous massive beauty i dive into their power, letting their force pass over me; feeling their…

day 208

restless sleep; wrestling dreams i rise in between thirst and tension to a silent house, awaiting activity, windows fogged from a damp night with only my thoughts to accompany me. so i let all remain blurred until i softly focus. 7.27.17

day 207

the rain is the rhythm of our unmet expectations demanding to be heard reminding me of natures force to exceed expectations. so i wait in its percussion to see how the rhythm evolves. 7.17.17

day 206

i fill myself with tranquil thoughts like a sponge i absorb the happiness in others while squeezing out their discontent. i have my days that dip down low drag on the bottom of all that has been; my clothes get stained, scratches on my skin, but before long i can stand again….

day 205

the air hangs heavy with future rain, continuing to dampen summer’s sun, slowing us down with its humid breath, a drowsy drug numbing our edges, we question what we expect to achieve until returning to the dry cool inside which sobers us up and we feel more alive. 7.24.17

day 204

too often we cut the stem soon to bud, from fears of what may we’re stuck in our mud of dismay, discontent, we stomp out our voice, awaken the fear to determine our choice dance or to dream for what we can’t see; i prefer to remain just being me. 7.23.17

day 203

i honor my curves as i treasure my strength; i learn to stand tall and stretch to full length; i hug with my heart and love from my soul with all that i’ve learned and still yet to know. 7.22.17

day 202

as i walk in the graveyard of my past affections i blow them a kiss as i pass them by for i am not heartless just unrepentant that all you carry never was mine. 7.21.17

day 201

my body has opened to a new direction, i sweat and i stretch to be more open and yielding to all i encounter. i’ve opened beyond where i’ve been before. 7.20.17

day 200

in the dance you miss a step and let me spin away; as i twirl, i soon forget why we even chose to play this back and forth, of truth and worth, i’m moving on anyway. 7.19.17

day 199

i drink the quiet until refreshed and allow my thoughts to juggle with my sensations until calm permeates. 7.18.17

day 198

in the lulls i regroup to consider who i’ve been and who i yet may become… 7.16.17 [Image Source]

day 197

in the flurry of mislaid plans circling highways and impending thunder, i wait powerless, under the will of others, surrendering control and accepting the flow. 7.16.17
