Cheesy

A cheesy day
Filled with understanding
Knowing
And newness
As we get ready to say goodbye

River and Ocean

Where river meets ocean
My heart catches the last
Of a quiet breeze
Meant to pass
Undisturbed
Undisturbing
Still
My heart knows
Better
As it flies away

Purple and Red

Each had a little
Taste of dark chocolate
That lingered
Some sleepy
Some excited
All a little purple

Fences

Build yourself in
Build another out
Either way,
You're separated by
Nothing more than wood, metal, and sadness

These Moments

Nothing could be more
Perfect
Whole
Present
Than this
Here and now

If only I could put it in a bottle
And have it for all time
To relive
To resing
To rejoice

Such miraculous adventures

On a cold evening
A few miracles
She themselves through
Culinary adventures

663

Here right

Here we are,
All together
Like how I love
Us being together
Here, there
It doesn't really matter
As long as we know
We're together

Eve

On the verge of a break
Much excitement
Spread arms
To take that
Deep breath

661

Different

Deep down,
Are we really all that different
Differently abled
Differently positioned
Differently brought up
Differently similar

660

New Devices

Along comes something new
Exciting
Ripe with future
Smelling fresh
Feeling crisp

Until it gets old.

Peppermint

Monday afternoons lead
to peppermint-filled
Tuesday nights

Reunions

When you are united
with little parts of your heart
you think you've left in various places
you've lived in,
grown in,
Learned from,
and you think your heart couldn't possibly
be more full,
or grow any bigger,
or have more room in it,
It surprises you.

Holiday Gatherings

Kind gentle hearts
Are all around

It's opening your heart
To let them in

That's the tricky part
Open to love

So much to say thanks for
As we gather, share, laugh, and cheer

Our common stories
And the paths we took on our own

655 & 656

What's next?

So much to think about
So much happening at once
And such little that's really really
Worth anything

654

Almost There

I can almost see it
Touch it even
Hang in there
I tell myself
For the 100th time
Hang in there
Almost there

Change

Sometimes you need to change
How you're looking at the same world
Through different eyes

Another View

A little pumpkin
She called you
And so you are indeed
Small, little, and as pumpkiny as you can be

Where's That Button?

I wish I knew
I wish I could find it
So I could push it
And feel
All of this stress disappear

Do you know where?
Do you have it?
Have you seen this button?

Don't End

The sun rose so softly this morning
hardly noticeable
lazing
in those heavy low clouds
It cajoled
patting, soothing

My morning lulled into a cozy
afternoon
Moments to just be
Is it so terrible
That I don't want it to end?

649

So What?

I hear you laughing
detached
separate
putting those compartments to good use
I know you may think,
So what?
It was a long time ago
Get over it

But this heart remembers
and won't forget easily
how long it has taken
To put itself back together

648

Yesterday's Mirror

Looking into can be a hard
as looking back

You just never know
what you find staring back

A reminder of has beens
or promises of could be's

You just never know
but that's not reason enough to close your eyes

Little Joys

No,
Not everything's perfect
It never has been
Perfection doesn't hide
Behind little moments of joy
Perfection
is
little
moments
of
joy

Movimientos

In a world so warped
How do little miracles happen
How do we keep tomorrow breathing
It's in little movements
That I hold hope

Friends

Never forget
The value of having people
Who care about
And love you...
Friends.

Longing

As I make it through
Another day
I long for all those
Yesterdays
That held so much unknown
Yet left me whole
Longing for that sense of knowing
Even in emptiness

643

Departure

Like every beauty
This one too
Had its ending
I miss the hereness
Of knowing she is here

642

Arrival

When time transcends meaning
And the bounds of our fingers
It'll be time for new beginnings
To marry endings

641

I see you

See through
That's what you are
All the way through you
You are your own
But still mine

640

Almost there

Who will you be?
What will you be called
So you will be one
And your own
All at once?

639

The next day

When you're surrounded by goodness
It's difficult to stay sad
Pick up those pieces
Walk tall and away
