Bedtime Tea

Just like this tea, I am in need

Of some sugar, honey, and maybe cream

So hot and spicy

This ginger tea

To ease the pain

Of my unsettled woes

To ease the strain

On my severed hopes

To soothe my throat

After all this crying

To give me life

When I feel I’m dying

Just like this tea

I can heal my pain

Forget the sadness

Ignore the rain

Take joy in each sip

From the cup that’s life

Go on with my day

Until it turns to night

Just like this tea

I am in need

To be poured into a vessel

And be held

And ease

Everyday is a Holiday, a poem

From the day you were born

And almost 9 months before

I knew that I’d love you

Forever and more

From your cute little curls

To your ten little toes

The way that you hug me

Really warms up my heart

The smile on your face

Is all that I need

I never imagined I could love someone this much

And I never thought I could be so loved in return

So this holiday season, I give thanks to the Universe, Source, God, etc.

For everyday is a holiday

Because I have you in my arms

To Blogmas or Not to Blogmas?!

I’m pretty new to blogging or whatever it is I’ve been doing lately 😅 so I hadn’t really heard of Blogmas until this past week?! But ’tis the season, right? I decided last minute (literally about an hour before the end of the first day of December), that I’ll be joining in on the fun, in my own way of course. 🎄🎄🎄

So anyway, I guess I’ll be sharing some holiday-themed poetry, writing, random photos, special moments, playlists, etc. I’ll use this as a challenge to be more consistent as far as how often I post and to be more creative with the types of things I choose to share in my special space here.

By the way, the featured photo is my semi-finished Christmas tree before my toddler son knocked it over. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Anyway, are you riding the Blogmas wave? I’d love to follow along with you and any of your blogger friends! Share your site with me! Happy Holidays!

The River

Sometimes

I may feel like I’m trapped

Sandwiched between two neverending walls

In a tunnel with no light at the end

Everlasting night is not my friend

But if I keep going

Just one more step

Just one more minute, hour, day, week, month, year

I always find the river I’m looking for

And I always appreciate it even more

Is this love?

Uncomplicated surrealness

Thoughts from the deepest

Like a dream you can’t wake up from

But you can’t wait to fall asleep in

You’re not a challenge, but you challenge me

How can you be so different yet…

Feel so familiar

Too many characters, not enough space

But you simplified the message

And eliminated mistakes

A smiley face here, a thinking face there

We could learn a new word

And rename our whole world

Woke

Nervous
Because the memory, of things which haven’t occurred, haunts me
And I am bound with these invisible yet burdensome chains
To a spirit of enlightenment
That no one will believe
Unless they, too, are free

Just my imagination

It’s just my imagination

When I open my eyes and see you next to me

Right? 

When you text me

When you call me

When you say my name as if you’re falling

There’s nothing really there

Right? 

It’s just my imagination

When you rush to my side when I’m feeling down

Right?

When you protect me

When you uplift me

When you say you’ll always be there for me

There’s nothing really there

Right?

It’s just my imagination

When you talk about the future and my role in it

Right?

When you say you need me

When you say you want me

When you tell me “please don’t leave me”

There’s nothing really there

Right? 

It’s just my imagination? 

Right?

Right?

Right.

I Wonder

What does it feel like

To be in your shoes?

I wonder

As I sit here sulking

Soaking in the madness of my life

I wonder if it’s better where you are

Do you, too, look up at the stars

And wonder if they’re brighter

To someone worlds apart?

Dear Honey

I set my bowl of honey
With hopes you’d fly in
I poured it all on me
Let it cover my skin
I prayed for your loving
I prayed for your sin
I hoped you would touch me
And that we’d begin

I waited and waited
Let it drip to the floor
I pictured you craving
Consumption and more
I felt what it’d feel like
If you came through that door
Got lost in my thoughts
‘Til all the honey was poured

Currently Free

Currently

Working on my throat chakra

Trying to express myself

Finding my voice

Surrounding myself with pure divine light

Elevating onto the clouds

Shifting my perspective and position

So that I can breathe

Flowing like a steady river

Free
