Seasons- A Poem About Embracing Change

The seasons change, but we like to stay the same. It’s taken me too many revolutions to see how this endless dance of endings and beginnings Is not just for our viewing pleasure.

Take a Break.

This was my view on my way in to work this morning. It told me even the sun, brilliant as she is, needs to hide sometimes. It doesn’t mean she’s not enough. It doesn’t mean she’s not there. It just means she can’t shine so bright, every day. If the sun needs to withdraw from …

Eggs and Ketchup

I think that’s why life is hard. When someone dies, What are we supposed to do with all the love we have for them? Are we supposed to forget it, stow it away, in the deepest part of the sea? Or are we supposed to express it; let it be free? It comes out of …
