Day 29 – Touch the Sky

Touch the Sky 

Today, you tell me you found what you are looking for.


It’s always been a competition between us,

Who can outrun the other.


I’ve learned that some need to win,

And I am only able to swim to my other shore,

Across my own ocean.


This is my cross to bear,

And I smile because things grow from the ground up.


Sometimes, there is nothing more beautiful than reaching up to touch the sky.

Day 27 – Swirl


Tonight is bittersweet.


I am home, wrapped in a blanket of pool water and blueberry smoothies.


Sometimes life is as simple as breathing,

And as much as I want to push pause on the rolling waves,

I can’t.


I swim on and on, as if it is the last thing I have left.

So much changes,

And warm hands on my heart,

Must let go.


I wish I could chart the unknown with you.
