There are Lights within you

There are as many lights

within you

as there are stars

in the sky.

And there are more lights

being born

every day

than anyone (including yourself)

can ever manage

to extinguish.

Sitting in the backseat

Sometimes life is like

sitting in the backseat of a car

listening to someone else’s music

watching a time lapse of lives

being lived

outside your window.

Waiting to reach a destination

you know nothing about,

but that you are hoping

is going to be good.

Whispers of Spring

February has been a month of celebration filled with birthday cakes, boxes of chocolate and early mornings steeped in rose.

There has been flirtatious violets, swoonworthy romances and sunny windows catching dreams and turning them into books.

There has been pictures of Italy, poems of fire and beauty, and cranky creepy crawlies waking up from winter’s sleep.

There has been music; happy tunes awash in daisy blues, dragonflies bewildered by city hues, and imaginary walks with imaginary dogs.

All in all, it has been a month of tiny whispers of things to come, to grow, to bloom. After all, “to wait” means that something good is coming your way.
