Another double post! Enjoy!
“I am grateful for the study times with RJ”
Sometimes getting out of the house is just what I need. It’s even better to have RJ to keep me company. Staying stuck in the house really does take a toll. So go outside, get some fresh air.
” I am grateful for writing poetry”
I’m not the best poetry, but we all can’t be. I’m learning every day new ways to improve my writing. Sometimes I have really bad days or the first draft is terrible. Nothing is perfect the first time. Practice leads to improvement.
National Gratitude Month
Day #7: Write a poem about something that makes you happy.
To hear you in the air is blissing
And I want to celebrate my sensitivities
Nothing has to be done
Just as long as we can hear
The words of your music, and music
And the taste of your knowledge
Who would have known
that entering here would be without effort
Separated is lost and silent
I feel the need to touch and hear again
Pluses with Vibrations
Collect our joys in the pockets we share
Sounds and music
Embraces our embraces
Beneath us is the soundscape
And to escape was our home
Approaching me and to you
Was the decision that struck the tempo
In our oceans of skins
In a girl and boy
Day #5: Write a Eulogy
It is coincidence that today is the day,
The day that it happened.
I talked about you yesterday when filing through passed names
Yours that my brother holds
but he never knew you.
Your skin was light and eyes blue, or green
I was too small to remember.
It is so hard to believe that you would end
That people even give ends to themselves.
I only remember your smiles and laughter
And the first time you took me on an errand to the mermaids coffee
And I wasn’t even tall enough to see past the car window.
You were a father
You were a husband
You were a brother
You were an uncle
You were a friend of all
