My sister! My strength!

My sister. So incredibly awesome & talented. This arrived today from 800 miles away wrapped in love with her handwriting immediately comforting me. A perfect fit for this sickly lady and my honey/lemon tea. The poet is not in me today, but it was so neat to see MY words, my heart’s work, on this cup. #thoughtful #loved #mysister #okwithchange @meganclark28 via Instagram http://ift.tt/1xcIIQp

Poem: A Portrait in a Prison

It’s in the time-stands-still moments I know you best.
A silken caress, a deep sigh of depression.
Mesmerizing eyes, faintly there.
A portrait in a prison.

It’s in the crush-my-heart moments I know you best.
A stinging grasp, a tormented cry of rage.
Piercing eyes desperately stare.
A dove in a cage.

It’s in the cotton candy moments I know you best.
The melting lips, a joyous gurgle of wonderland.
Sparkling eyes, reaching deeply.
A precious pearl in my hand.

It’s in these moments I’ve come to need you more, I believe.
I push away, I cringe.
I squeeze, I nurture, I breath.

Never would I be a million free birds,
But just one caged with you.
Nor do I dare loose my hands,
For a precious pearl awaits the blue.

Flying, falling, sinking, soaring,
We are yet to find the place to be free.
Cages and prisons and hands be damned.
Holding on I am, tightly for eternity.

Sunshine and Pancakes Please

Question is, is it really about my child or me?

Sunshine and Pancakes


No chance I will get up!

No smiles, no hugs,

No warm snuggle time for you — harrumph!

———

You can’t expect me!

Only moans and groans.

Pillows and blankets I choose, you see…

———-

Clouds and toast won’t appease

The monster inside me.

Only sunshine and pancakes please!
