The Sky is Still Blue

and I miss you

You were my port, for decades……so long, in fact, that I believed you would always be. You were like a God in my eyes.........beautiful, strong, tall, full of wrath, mirth, or concern….yet never jealous or needy. You had always been, a...

I am coming into a beautiful new relationship with myself. It seems unfortunate that it has taken six decades to get to this point, but I am happy to be here now.

Earth: Walking barefoot through grass, the rich tangy smell of it, the way it tickles the soles of my feet, and wriggles between my toes, leaving its kiss of green on my skin. Laying on sun warmed sand, its heat wrapping me like a blanket as it copies and holds my form...
