one corner of the spectrum

Some days I want to save the world.

Some days I want to save myself.

Some days I want to save everyone in between.

Today I will settle for the sky.

Tomorrow, we will see.

faking spring on february first

because this is sunshine turned into smile

cheap grocery store flowers bringing joy
in a way that never occurs in august

this clear blue sky and i


we hear robin song and bloom

january’s garden

blushing with the memory

of sun on skin and

layers of blue sky blanket

tiny stars of optimism

in a kitchen filled with

mittens and boots

and the slight refusal

of dormancy

waiting to fly

Monday morning:
this headache with broken wings that flap inside my skull.

Melting snow and downward dog stretching age from bones gone brittle.

Thoughts on loss and gain and loss again.

Wishing to be a tree for a night and the moon for a day.

Spiraling down like a lost flake of snow and landing gently
on a bed of frozen promises.

Melting into tomorrow.

Backlit hope and translucent dream.

Flying closer to the sun.

Winging it.

on living where you are

Which, just now, means living inside a cold.

Watching the world go by.

Thinking about black stars and endless cycles.

A sun that also, always, rises.

Re-reading favorite books.

Tackling new ones.

A Christmas tree in the living room, still blaring cheer.

Being okay with that, with all of it.

Being here.

I’m sure I’ll regret this in a month but for now…

and all I want to do is sit by the fire and read.
