Sitting amongst the birch trees,
I listen to the day fade in and out, as I put markings down on the page, coax an image that is enough for me to recognize this moment, eager to continue marking the days–marking the pages with, not only words, but real images. 

A few weeks ago, while hubby was driving us back from dinner, I rolled the window down and kept snapping photos of this gorgeous sunset. The beauty of iPhone photography is that is convenient and allows one to stare right into the sun and capture some beautiful photos. As I swiped through the many photos that I snapped, I hadn’t realized or seen the bird flying by, but my camera did.


All powerful Sun, you warm this great Earth,
not only with your energy, but with your beauty.
Your glow is ever present and shines down upon us.

The page has been pulling at my sleeves,
with letters, words, sentences, but also with lines,
circles, and doodles. It’s a familiar feeling of wanting to draw something
to sketch my dreams and the images that form
from below the surface, yet as my cycle goes,
I have moments of glee and moments of frustration, disappointment.
It’s good for me, though; good to be challenged in a new way;
and when I surrender to the process, I feel something–

I see something speaking to me in a way that makes me want to know more.
