When Shadows Fall We Rise

Let us be done now with thinking. Let’s slip into our hearts to hear what they say when we’re free from the chatter of how its supposed to be. Free from fear that is not about what is but about what has been before now before this. When words were spoken (that didn’t account for […]

Angel

Come find me.  I am here,  where I kiss the sun,  and burn with the moon.  Where I hear your feelings,  and dream your thoughts.  Waiting,  but never just, waiting.  —————– This isn’t a bloggy blog post, and it’s not poetry unless you want it to be.
