The Mindful Eye

Uncategorized

I saw the golden light

creep along the leaves

and I cried because it was so much bigger than beautiful

so much more than the prison of a word

~

And I cried for those who can not see it

for those who will never know

the way the light dances in different directions

a symphony that will never be seen again

~

how sad for them to have missed this

how wonderful for me to have seen

The Day

Uncategorized

I sat upon a day

and the Dawn flinched at my weight

“How heavy you are my dear” it whispered

“Lay your burden onto me”

~

And so I breathed a sigh of relief

and gave birth to a terrible storm

The clouds circled, catching my cries

like a desperate child, seeking sustenance

~

And when it was finally over

my eyes skipped around wildly

Expecting to find the damage

and stumbling upon a rainbow

 

 

An Ode to Insecurity

Who am I

if I am no longer dominated

by the notion that I must fix god’s genetic mistake?

~

Who am I without the mission to mould me

into that which I would be proud to have made?

~

Who am I without the journey to unfold me?

To see the past as a living anguish that has been triumphed over

by that future woman

standing on her pedestal of contentment and admiration
