Gentleness and Warmth


The spring speaks softly of gentleness and warmth

allowing our hearts

to feel safe again,

as we open ourselves

to her beauty,

in awe

we receive the confidence

to move forward.

Finding Each Other


I learned how to turn and shape my discovery,

my emblazoned star

into a more pliable romance,

so she would notice me,

and we could both walk out of this mess together,

seeking wholeness. We did find

the right shoes though,

used, but in remarkable condition.

And she spun, twirled

in her cotton skirt,

with the sun in her hair

the scent of lavender

defending us,

and that’s how it all began really,

our journey together.


Note: Sometimes we find ourselves by finding each other.
