Time Bottle

A blip within this moment, within this forever. One grain of sand falling, becoming like all the rest in the hourglass time bottle. Hero heralded to myth of memory, of being known within the folds of this universe; made by each hand yet known to be molded by the few rather than a little bitContinue reading “Time Bottle”

Connections

When you look at me do you know how I feel? My mind’s ghost, harrowed spirit, and shadow. Do you know my name? When yesterday was for trust broken do I always have to be disappointeed, will you let me fall? Why, when aren’t we the same? I still remember screaming a name and noContinue reading “Connections”

TheContinue reading “Growing Wild”

Sprouting

Spring is visiting soon and the blade of grass waits eagerly to belong. Small, short, and the only sliver of green amongst the grass that died last fall. Emerging from the earth as the snow melts, seeking to make its home amongst the spring air. So close to being viewed by the sun, touched byContinue reading “Sprouting”
