Loop Around The Sun

I watched a white plane loop around the sun, cross the crescent moon one sunny afternoon. The fallen snow from days before caught my attention. I looked away then looked back only to see it had vanished, fading into the soft blue sky slowly then all at once. It looped back time and time again,Continue reading “Loop Around The Sun”

Observations During A Blizzard

The dog burrows himself into the snow. This is his definition of heaven, loving every second of creating new paths in the backyard that will melt by the weekend. A robin moves from one unstable branch to the next, trying to withstand the 45 mph winds. Ice gets blown on to the window, creating uniqueContinue reading “Observations During A Blizzard”

Spring is Right Around the Corner

Yesterday, I went for a walk. I wore shorts. There was a change in the air. Spring is right around the corner. Warm weather is here! I walked for almost an hour. I took my time appreciating nature and the air in my lungs. Last week, I had hurt the muscles in-between my ribs whileContinue reading “Spring is Right Around the Corner”

Deep Breathing

I have found that if I begin my day in a meditative state, I’m more likely to have a better day than if I just get up and go. I spend about ten minutes or so breathing in through my nose and out through my mouth with a panda eye pillow over my eyes. IContinue reading “Deep Breathing”

Walk on Saturday

I’m reminded of how grateful I am to breathe without major problems. I have breathing problems, but I’m not sick. These days, breathing gets put into perspective. The scars on my lungs will forever hinder my inhales and exhales. The colder it is, the harder it is to inhale without pain. A stabbing feeling overwhelmsContinue reading “Walk on Saturday”

Where Do We Go From Here?

The question I keep asking myself. I don’t have an answer. I don’t think anyone does. We stared at screens As we watched Everything unravel. It was a train wreck But we couldn’t look away. How could this be happening? Why isn’t anyone stopping this? More questions we asked. We know more now. But itContinue reading “Where Do We Go From Here?”

Details

The light looks different When the sun disappears early Behind gray winter clouds. There’s a feeling with how Vivid the earth looks. It’s a particular sight That makes me think The day is transitioning Into night an hour before The sun is supposed to set. A bare Christmas tree Waits to be hauled away. ChristmasContinue reading “Details”

To Mold A Story

The paths I walked along in summer Are now muddy from fallen snow. Autumn leaves stick around in early winter. The cold air freezes rain. It’s hard to breathe when I can see my breath. I stay inside, wearing fuzzy socks and warm sweatpants. My cardigan has pockets big enough to hold my Kindle. TheContinue reading “To Mold A Story”

Sunset

Some nights, I look up towards The sky as the sun is setting And I’ll see a masterpiece In front of me. Gigantic clouds reflecting the sun, smaller ones not in the way of light. A reminder of how small we are Compared to the sky above. It’s one of those nights Where a beautifulContinue reading “Sunset”

Splitting Once More

I knock on all the wood in the room, hoping this is a step in the right direction. I look down and reality splits into two, a new spin on something I know all too well.  I throw my phone onto a counter, thinking I’ll forget about it for a while.  I try to avoidContinue reading “Splitting Once More”
