notes to myself



be 

 the bluebird swelling with songs as sun rises

 the tide storm dancing with kelp

 the pearl drops on fallen maple leaves

 the electric guitar strings of wind's murmurings

 the light keeper in darkest of nights 

be 

 madly in love with life

 unapologetically, myself

  2. Yours is such a gently quiet quadrille, Grace, the words moving like a ballet across my computer screen. I love ‘the tide storm dancing with kelp’ and ‘pearl drops on fallen maple leaves’. How can one not be madly in love with life?
