week thirteen

there is a faraway place...
its touch is as a frostbitten dream.
within it
i see the tips of tulips,
blue with ice
a memory of a forgotten spring.
calm, serene, undisturbed
like the quiet under the water.
you were there with me once
and the touch of your hand felt like fire
against my cool skin
i have never forgotten...
in this perfectly imperfect world
there are only dreams.

week twelve

12:00 am already...
where has my day gone?
gone with the long-forgotten breaths
of all the other yesterdays~
each drenched with their own feelings,
each sorted into piles
somehow wishing to bring meaning
to this life of mine.
but each new second slips by
like the rising and falling tide
wishing to be fixed in time.
just as the beach will always
show evidence of this tide,
so each day, each memory will
always be evidence
of the ticking second hand...
and the days of my life.

week eleven

i will remember today
years from now
when the mists of the unknown
become the clear skies of tomorrow
i am stronger than yesterday
more alive in some way
to break down to nothing but
salt-water stains
and start over again...
to renew the spirit within.

week ten

i will know the feeling
of holding a life inside myself
i will smile contently
as i rub my growing belly
i will wear this same dress
my mum wore
i will dream of baby names
and curly red hair
i will rock a little one
in this same chair i was rocked in
i will be a mum
and proudly ask my own mum
"would you like to hold my baby?"

week nine

one girl
one day
this scarf...
she feels a friendship
wrapped around her
from a far-away place
and there are no words to describe her thankfulness.
from this place of expanse
there comes a soft voice...
a whisper of belief,
someone telling her
there is power in her thoughts.
she will be brave,
she will seek peace,
and she will smile.

*thank you dani. you are my whisper.
