A silent song. Lyrics accompanied by a sweet melody. Pieces of art, beautiful, both separate and together A family this must be. Sweet rain drops on the window pane. Wet streaks running down a slender cheek. Pain, anger thoughts. A fear this must be. A smile. Wrinkled lines caress the eyes, forehead, and lips. Laughter... Continue Reading →
The morning sun peaks through the shades cutting, molding his face. His chest rises and falls. I'm captivated by what my tired eyes think they see. Mosaic art pieced together by shadows and light. I look for those attributes. They calm a nightmare. They lull me to sleep. They make my heart race. Slowly his... Continue Reading →
Young their pinkies intertwined while sitting atop the monkey-bars. The heartbeat beneath his chest humming underneath a blanket in the back of his pick-up truck One went to college. The other stayed home, comfortable. Other people came and went; they both changed they both learned. A visit back home, a holiday parade, and a simple,... Continue Reading →

Soar past the stars, Let your feathers fall, and End a sentence with &. On my right wrist I hold the beginning of my life story my moments give me shimmer. A statement, a story. Just ask me, "And?"
