Self Love

WPC: Wanderlust

A wandering heart yearning for the next view
circling to what she always comes back to the thrill
of the wonder the excitement of new points of view
small details waiting discoveries ready
for their overturning her breath is held
as the anticipation builds knowing
the winds change in the springtime and
her feet begin to wander
with her heart (more…)

WPC: Surprise

There is an element of surprise within
those who don’t fit in who bling
instead of blend
standing tall strong deep and wide unwilling to curve
to another with expectations instead they find their unique stride they wind
their own way offering a glimpse (more…)

She May Fall

And she falls within her tears
cascading tender curiosity
and honesty driving her down into the abstract
where doubt and shadow may dwell but that is in the past
where she may find answers to today to the burden
welling up she may uncover (more…)

Tangled

the softness of redwood needles fold over your head
protecting you guiding you standing watch for you
as the world turns again your breath
