what is the message of a baby born to die
a tiny body pushed into an abbreviated life cycle,
outside the womb with a finite number of days ahead
the circle of life measuring a circumference as small as they.
why have they arrived, what did they come to say
with words never to come forth from sweet puckered mouths.
fluttering lashes speak quick tongue
staccato fists whisper against the air
a cry to forever scribe our heart.
each one not here to stay
to tell something before they go...

• nature speak
• being the only driver on back roads traversing countryside that is new to me
• awakening, opening, releasing, beginning
That last one, finding gratitude in awe, was something I reflected on for awhile. Much like staying open to growth and continuing to learn no matter my age or what I know, moments when my eyes are wide with wonder, when I feel genuinely surprised in a good tingling goose-bump sort of way, and am just amazed beyond belief are quite energizing!
I love the feeling of awe, had never really stayed in its moment long enough to fully and completely taste, touch, see, hear, and smell it, let it work its magic on my spirit, imprint itself all over on my soul, give it a proper nod…have you? So next time awe is before you, settle yourself and…
keep your peepers open!®
