Heatwave

During a heatwave Remember the rain Remember the darkness When no light remained Remember our longing For a brighter day For the sun’s return We hoped and prayed During a heatwave Remember rainy days The rain we once cursed We wish for today

Peekaboo

Playing peekaboo With the dirt below Whimsical petals In the sun glow In pastel shades Pearly white Tiny flowers rise To hug the light Kissing the dark Cold dirt goodbye Embracing the day Reaching for the sky

Maybe Today

Maybe today You’ll make plans for tomorrow Maybe today You’ll find healing for sorrow Maybe today You’ll live in the moment               … Sing a new song               … Breathe a deep breath               … Appreciate the little things               … Live without regret Maybe today You’ll live life your way Maybe, just maybe
