Forest for Trees

Tree by tree

It becomes.

Acorns

Saplings

Alder

Gum.

Branch by branch

Green and dun.

Creepers

Leaners

Holders on.

A woodland

Is more than its

Sum.

Notable Moment

In the lush-rush of life

In between breath and sigh

She pressed pause

To take note

What makes special

This time

And all moments

To come.

Let The Lines

Like the breeze

Licking yarn

Like the trees

Upon sand

Like the dock

Seeking sun

Let the lines

Run right through

From the heart

To beyond.

In a Flap?

If the world’s feverish frenzies

Get you all bothered

And frantically het up,

Take a breath

Form a pause

Find a foothold to grasp,

Nothing good ever came

From fluttering in a flap.

Inefficiently So

There is magic in finding

Some moments so slow

That life trickles along

In a lazy brook’s glow,

Like a pause in between

Busy ebb, bustling flow

A delicious respite

Into half-idle row

Caring naught though you know

If you come or you go

Inefficiently so.

Be A Little Foreign

Be a little foreign

To yourself.

Let corners of not-yet-seen

Within

Take a tour

Inside your mind.

Embrace

The unfamiliar parts of

You

Till they become

Another kind of

Home.

Favorite Places

There’s no place quite like it

And yet it’s more place than one

Where the surf breathes the ocean

Onto bare feet and sand.
