ALL THE STEPS

I saw a butterfly/moth on my bedroom window screen. It was beautiful. I’m glad for the day. For the steps I’ll take. For my daughter and for my person. For my family and friends. Recognizing the beauty in the day. That’s hard for some of us. It takes practice. Today I am finding beauty in…

INSIDE THE BLUR

There is beauty inside the blur: Some days The world is blurry Looking as if it’s melting Its turquoise skies into grass While shades of molten glass Swirl like mist around trees And lonesome shadows Joust with the light of day The movement of life Forming abstract shapes And dancing like liquid clay But that’s…

DAYDREAM

The slight shade tickled my toes As it danced around the sunlight Whizzing dragon flies chased Daffodils and sunflowers That played tug of war with the breeze Don’t they know? Don’t they care?

EXPLORING FREEDOM

  Written by Ras Munroe and Hastywords The land should be familiar but it is never the same. It is a foreign substance beneath my callused feet. It is a strange feeling seeking acceptance labelled outcast. Alone yet surrounded by people this is but an empty existence. The turmoil runs deep like pulsing veins of…

RHYTHMIC VERSES

Written by Twiistd and HastyWords The moonlight sparkled on the surface of the sea There was no one around Just you and me I turned to gaze at your starlit eyes It was in that very Moment I realized How connected we were to the stars, to the sea to the breathing of the trees…

Autumn Joy

Oranges and reds rustle out my window As dawn reaches in and warms my skin I lie in the sun, like leaves on the ground Bathing in the light, worries wash away Joy comes in the form of chattering geese Carrying me from summer with their song Breathing in the beauty…

FINDING BEAUTY by Tina Hickman

I love this beautiful girl.  Sometimes people come into your life you just know will always be a part of you even even if they have to move on at some point. This pretty girl weaseled her way into our hearts and is now an extension of our family.  She wrote this beautiful thought and…
