Day 30 – Imperfection


I watch the trees outside move in the breeze.

Their new blossoms flow lazy and smooth. 

This month moves faster than I ever thought it could,

And for the first time I do not look into the mouth of that lion called change,

As May ushers itself in.

Life is long and short,

And springtime is here in all it’s glory before I’ve really bid winter goodbye.

I watch the very first blooms of bleeding hearts in the backyard sway in the wind.

They are me, beautiful in our imperfection. 


Day 26 – Thoughts on Bittersweet Things

Thoughts on Bittersweet Things

My heart swells two sizes,

When I think of saying goodbye to you.


Things are changing,

And maybe I’m leaving at the right time.


But there are some things,

My heart is twisted to think,

I won’t see you every day.


Goodbyes are so hard this time.
