a study: birth





there are so many green places
and juicy peaches
and moments of bravery
and sunlit decks
and laughing through the tears
and psalms of pain
and seconds of hope
and times where you are loved so well that the light seeps through all of your cracks and makes the sky shine
yet to see.

it is silly, my love, to be so sad.
when your God
is so good.

and there are so many blue eyes
and strong hands
and little boys
and cold waters
and aspen leaves
and moments of complete happiness
and cinnamon rolls
and sailing ships
and stars
yet to see.

it is silly, my love, to be so sad.
lift up your eyes.
learn to love again
and do not dwell on death
any longer.

  5. lists of good things are the best. i love how you did one called decay first, and then birth. God is upside-down like that and i love it.
    "it is silly, my love, to be so sad.
    lift up your eyes.
    learn to love again"

  7. it really is silly to be sad when God is so good--and when little kids exist! (seriously they're so smart, insightful, and cute--plus they teach me a lot about myself and the world.

    your poetry is always just WOW. have you ever considered publishing your poetry in a book? because I'd consider buying it :D
