Winter Rain

Standard

Cold winter rain falls on my

Face.

I like to look up when it is pouring

Allowing myself to

Get completely

Drenched because everything dries

Off eventually right?

It burns my skin

Yet chills my bones.

I love how it makes me feel alive,

My whole body

Shivering to keep me warm.

All the hairs on my body standing up

In protest.

I protest the protest and giggle.

And it always feels so delicious to get warm After

A good chill.

On to a hot shower and into

A pile of blankets

Until another moment shakes up all of

My senses.

Life presents

Continuous moments to marvel.

All Around

Standard

I sense you but I know

Not

From which direction.

All around me it seems.
Waste no time in learning your lessons this journey

Through.

You promised you would find me

Once again

In

This life.

Where are you now?
I run  knowing I must

Go to the river

Most hastily.
There i submerge myself completely

Knowing that

Someday the same water that touches

Me

Will in someway

Caress you.
On it goes,

And on and on.

Whether raindrop, river or ocean

It makes its way to you;

As will my heart.

Muse

Standard

Look at life as if your muse.

There she is right in front of you,

In the sky, the earth, the creatures around you.

The air that touches your skin.

The fruit that grows on the trees.

Look and see. Breathe and feel
Everything,

Everyone

As if new everyday.

So mysterious,

Magical and deep.

Fall in love again and again.

Side lines

Standard

There are those souls in life who return to the sidelines.
They are the ones we turn to
For
Encouragement.
The souls who do not relish the spotlight.
Not glory.
Those who cheer us on,
Stay steady and strong.
Who doctor our wounds
And share words of wisdom.
Patting us on the backs as they send us back out there
Having faith in our capabilities we cannot see ourselves.
We forget sometimes they themselves
Are human.

Lemon Tree

Standard

Come now,
Take my hand.
Let us sit under the lemon trees
In my uncles backyard.
Under the branches which bare fruit with
A bright yellow rind,

Those that  beckon us to partake of
Bitterness.
Instead we will delight in the color.

Instead we will take comfort in the silence
Between us and observe fruit and

Life

For a while.
