Sun Kissed Days

Sun Kissed Days

Tuesday, March 26, 2013


I squandered days,
I squandered youth,
living in my moment of reckless abandon.
I did not treasure it
nor cherish it,
I lived it ,
not questioning the consequence,
not questioning forever.
If I laid down my blunders
like a feast on a table,
would you cut them one by one
with a scalpel and examine their severity?
Would you ravage them like a vulture
does roadkill .
Would you judge ?
or would you celebrate,
 lines blurred ,
coloring outside the lines,
the beauty of risk,
  lessons learned,
wisdom extracted ,
a story of survival,
a story of life. 
Meet us here where we share our thoughts and our hearts.

Sunflowers in my window,
stretching to the honey colored
sun streaming in.
Mama told me to surround myself
with beautiful things.
I collect stories from strangers,
they look into my eyes 
and open their hearts.
I find beauty in them
like broken seashells washed ashore ,
like weeds I believed to be flowers,
when I was a little girl.
I collect stories of beautiful souls,
pain and sorrow.
Sober by truth and inspiration,
I find grace,
I find gratitude. 

Please meet us here where we share our thoughts and our hearts.

Our Garden, Our Change

We choose our battles,
our garden filled with 
weeds and thorns.
We plant seeds and wait
the branches of our heart
soar higher.
Outside the walls of our mind
we embrace truth.
The streets like old silver
are filled with tarnished dreams.
Let the dreams find the way,
let the soul reach the sky.
We tackle battles in our yard,
our home,
knowing that we can change our demons,
we can transform,
we can evolve. 
We can't sweep mistakes,
the way we rake leaves,
but we can wear them,
share them,
like a crown of flowers
from our garden.

Meet us here where we share our thoughts and our hearts.

I found you in a cave
lost and wandering,
I fetched stars from the sky
to light your way.
You were juggling the past
and the present,
you were recycling your dreams.
I peeled away the layers of yesterday,
and soaked your scars in the moonlight.
I asked you to see your reflection
in the ocean,
find your way,
illuminate your soul.
Trust that this is your journey to travel,
believe that you are meant to live,
to love,
to be right here in this moment.

Please join us here where we share our thoughts and our hearts.
