They Die, They Return.

The walls still smell like you. No matter how much the room has changed, I still see the hospital bed there with you lying in it. You didn't want to die, I know. Was it for us? Did you give your life away for our transformation? You feel far yet close. How can I find... Continue Reading →

Simply.

As my days fill fuller with places to get to and leave from, I feel tightening in my chest, Shallow breath. Mind calculating next moves, on time, expectations. Body fades into background.

Creekside Lullaby

I spent two months sleeping creekside. As I was rocked to sleep each night by the rushing lullaby, The dreamscape was purified by the collection of winter rain. It became part of me, this rhythm, as if my heart beat and blood flowed along with the rippling of the water. Finally we'd emerged out of drought. The sky opened up...
