Thanks BANKS

she thanked God for all of it…

i make long lists of all the things i’m grateful for

i live quietly and love my small circle of loved ones ferociously

i thank God for all of it

wearing my father’s old military jacket

Adorned with my mother’s old pin,

her mother’s old pin,

And a pin of my own that maybe my daughter will wear on her father’s old jacket one day i smile wide as this beautiful man snaps my picture just before the concert begins

she thanked God for all of it…

September Reign/Rain

I sketched myself as Virgin de Guadalupe and wrote this poem in September. Better late then never player.

As it thundered and stormed

she prepared to leave

all-weather she was

Come inside! yelled the fretful

You won’t survive! yelled the fearful

like an owl her head turned to face them one last time

is this what you call living?

resting fearfully on the periphery of your so called humanity

Inside these boxes – surviving

this could be your last September she said to them all

silence weighed heavy on the moment

nothing was the same

they could never go back

true colors had been shown

from the lessons she had grown

You can live this life faithfully or live it fearfully

not my business either way she said with a smile

good luck in this lifetime

Now it’s time for me to live mine

stepping into the storm she became one

with the wind

the rain

the pain

and burst into golden light

Transcending the bullshit

Hello October

Are you ready to start over?

A-musing

he takes pictures

i search for cafes open at 1am

we are partners in time

experiencing life together in way that can only be captured partially by any medium

A kaleidoscope of action and emotion driven by a love that seems only to grow with time

he orders us kombucha

i sketch his face in my notebook

we are partners in time

Helm of the heart

Slightly overwhelmed she let her heart take the helm

No more resisting all the unknowing

Falling softly into another realm

Heart at the helm

Falling slowly into the realization that this too shall past

Clarity flows through her

A cleansing wave of reality

Resilience sparkles on her skin

Heart at the helm

Releasing overwhelm

As heavenly help arrives

The heart knows who to call

Heart at the helm

No more overwhelm

”Just drop us a pin.”

they pulled up in the dead of night with love and empathy for everyone

night work

light work

God sent

hell-bent on making you remember that you are heaven-sent

built for more you are

one of God’s brilliant stars

cosmically created

you are enough

they pulled up in the dead of night with love and empathy for every one
