These days…. shipwrecked on the shores of the living
Most days….carving a new path with my shovel
Some days ….chasing my rabbit-running heart…. imploring it to ‘please calm down!’
Sometimes….hiding under a thick blanket of metaphors
Most times……hiding my fire-breathing dragon beneath serene smiles
Oft times…. finding diamonds- discarded by my spirit…. as it furiously makes room for more
