Ever-Blooming Love

A gift of love

Can I keep it alive?

I have no green thumb

Nor great history as a lover

Yet with patience

(Patience???)

Commitment

Tenderness

It bloomed again!

Love

Try hard and fail,

Be — and succeed!

Gentle Reminder

wpid-20140804_123704.jpg
In between
     300 calories
  of Greek yogurt
           meetings and
    paperwork
        another text and
phone calls
   visiting with
        office mates
     in the kitchen
for coffee
   planning agendas
       dealing with futility
 of social media –

There,
By the window,
A piece of life
Reminding me
To breathe
Reminding me
To be gentle
With myself,
With others
Reminding me
That peace comes
In stillness
Reminding me
To love ~
