ripening

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the heat stifles
flowers wilt
fruit ripens
(as do I)

 

 August is approaching

 

 

 

 

 

imperfect and alive

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Imperfection inspires invention, imagination, creativity.

It stimulates.

The more I feel imperfect, the more I feel alive.”

 

~ Jhumpa Lahiri

 

 

 

 

 

 

dichotomy

 

 

 

 

 

her days were a struggle between holding on and letting go

 

 

 

 

 

the old couple

 

 

 

 

 

 

two old souls
hanging out
ragged around the edges
perfectly comfortable

 

 

 

 

rhythm

 

 

 

 

 

she finds comfort in routine
the ebb and flow
the rhythm
of  everyday
even when it’s rough

especially when it’s rough
