The new normal.


Sun rises later, now
lower in the sky
Shards of light cut deeper across fertile land.

Just after High Noon peaks
End of Day squeezes the brightness down
into tight fists of Never Enough.

Yet,

What once delights mellows with old love,
potent and pure in its remains
ripples in satisfaction more subtle and soft,
stepping back from the heart to the gut without regret.

Feeling in the bones a release of grit and sweat,
moving with ease and shine

into a season of slowing down and letting go.

One moment more.


Waking to the sun feels like a precious gift, in these last days of summer.
Even though your days are shorter and change is near,
Appreciate the moment, for one moment more.

Frank.


You visit me in a dream
writing down things left to do on your yellow pad.
We can take care of it, yes.
You let me hug you
I see the black and blue, feel the lump in my throat
as the dream moves off in a new direction
My last words to you are, “I love you Frank.”
Sometimes surrender is the sweetest love.

Pattern.


“They wondered nonetheless about the curious net of obligations, failings, coincidences, and events that seem to tie everything together, even for those who think they are free … maybe there are laws of obligation which bind us to patterns that we can’t see and to tasks that we don’t perceive.”

-Mark Helprin, Winter’s Tale

Timeline for life.


The comings, the goings, the ups, the downs, the beginnings and ends of life.

This is how I learn to conjugate verbs in French. Funny thing is, I can’t remember how the phrase relates to speaking the French language … it’s become more meaningful to me in English.
