questioning

            “I’m not sure which matters more—where the seed comes from, or where it takes root and grows.” ~ Zetta Elliott            

spill

          summer in your house the morning light poured in spilling on the chenille like warm milk dishes clattering in the kitchen as you made breakfast          

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            

fear and love

          “There is something here that frightens me. When I figure out what it is that frightens me, I shall also know what I love here.”   ~ Clarise Lispector
