I have no words
They fell from my mouth
Like leaves from the tree
Stars from the sky
Hopes from my dreams
You can’t put them back
They must be grown
Time must pass
The tree will bloom
Stars will shine
I will speak of hope once more
Mid-October steals my words every year since we received the diagnosis of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex for our daughter on October 15, 2009. It took me a bit, but my words are back and I hope to be writing more regularly again. Welcome back to those who I have been neglecting or welcome in general.
Light crack breaks
Like dawn through the door jam
Spinning rumination halts mid worry
Small voice asks for a glass of water
No one is afraid of the dark;
They are afraid of what it hides.
Sleepy rays reflected playful on warm
ripples of green and blue.
Shadowed vapors harken season’s change.
Loss of innocence.
Lazy rays of sun
Set on summer’s waning days
Each end a new start
Seasons come and go
The only constant is change
Love shifts never falters
I carry the lantern of my love for you
illuminating our brightly colored souls;
it casts shadows in varied hues of gray.
Colors dance in the flickering flame;
we create newness in union of glow and shade.
Wind has no care for
The blossom blown from the tree
Life’s beauty is fleeting
