This Special Day

this special day carried my son's words
breathed the sound of leaves
 in a sweet, clean bowl
one smooth stone

this special day leans into that sharp edge
looks into that deep well
yields to fear 
and re-birth
celebrates this
fragile, tender
of moments given



  1. on the other side of a tough few months celebrating all the reasons to be happy to be here, in my life, with my son, my partner, my family, my several resonant communities, my wits ( mostly !! ), my gratitude and my edge.

    looking forward to writing more often and reading ( again and anew) the bloggers whose work I enjoy and admire.

  2. I am glad that you made it thus this far and did not fall into the bowl h. Nice to see you kiddo.
