Stepping Into the New : a short poem

Stepping into the new
the same place with a different head space

it feels like last year but my calender says its a year later
things said from old friends have changed meanings, i need a translater

external screams of moments long ago, my eyes show images from the past i can not throw,
internal whispers secrets of the future, time passes and the secrets are revealed sooner.

a flower in the white of winter crushed and dying becomes a blossom of self relying.
done with trying and denying now flying without lying.

the voices of those that used to hold back the truth are now just a background beat of childhood and youth.

all the things that used to be the present have been opened, loved, stolen and forgotten.

the things that used to be on my mind are now something to look back on in the past time
a sweet gift of memory that is now not relevant is something to look back on with remembrance.

Stepping into the new
with a new race the past erased

it feels like last year but now a lot greater
the world is a blank space with a new creator.

like old times ; a post about the current

Hello Everyone, I haven't done a post about my current life in a while and since today is a rainy/relaxed day I wanted to sit down and write about what I have been up to, thinking, and getting excited for these days. So for today's post, enjoy this "like old times" blogging style post.


-about a week ago, for mothers day, my family went to the zoo. it was a bunch of fun, I got to feed a giraffe and see grizzly bears, which are both two of my favorite animals!

True You

we are born into the universe and we are the universe
we are stitched into the living,  breathing, heart of the fabric of time and space.
we are hidden from prying eyes, camouflaged in likeness to the backdrop of the sky.
