Most people I know have been wondering, “what is up with her and all that walking?”

It started this past May when I decided to start walking off my growing quarantined butt, and it seems to be sticking.

But what they don’t know is.. it’s the little gifts I am party to along the way…

This Storm

raindrops on tin roof

is my calm within a storm

a soothing rhythm

ceases to calm in this storm –

wayward, unsettling times

skirting sprinkles from splashy
raindrops – midsummer

rain dances on my tin roof
in the rhythm of childhood

Rainy Days

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
as gray skies give way, raindrops
clamor – kids on porch with friends

wind starts door creaking
curtains billow through windows
dust from parched earth rise
kids on the  porch with their friends
paper boats in hand, pure joy

all at once, my trips
around the sun feels hurried –
a slow dawn of spring

frozen raindrops cling to buds
gently holding it in time
