We all have skeletons-

We all have skeletons- Usually they rest in the back corner of the closet, but sometimes they wake and start to claw at the crack under the door. Have you ever had to make a hard decision?

Through the Storm

I feel it coming. The leaves dance, the sky- swollen, A whispered sigh, Calm, unwary. The wind begins to whimper. The leaves chatter, hushing the sparrows, A reverberated hum, Calm, unstoppable.

I struggle to piece together the words that are tiny shocks of energy shooting across my brain. In one hand, it feels as though there is stillness, but when I look deeper within,  there’s an overwhelming sense that there are hundreds of words, screaming at me; fighting for me to hear them, to listen.

Ode to the Soul

It is the center of everything that is beating. It’s what tells me how to feel.  It tickles my heart when I am inflated with love. It flutters when I am nervous, and whispers to tread lightly. It aches when I become emotionally compromised, and when I’m angry it sets fire beneath my lungs and reminds me to breathe. Hidden… Continue reading Ode to the Soul
