Trusting Her Gut

Cracked teacup

What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her. Yet she knows in her gut, the balancing scale between her head and her heart, what lies behind are lies still present. Her heart prays what her head rationalizes that what happened, happened; and the future still holds promise.

Souvenirs

Souvenirs

strewn along the beach
remnants of dreams
crushed by the jagged rocks
of all my excuses

beachcombing the shiny
where time and tides
have sifted and sanded them
into souvenir reuses

mulling the treasure
a colorful collection
piecing together new dreams
reflecting my abuses
