Am writing

#‎amwriting
when work is so intense I sometimes forget to breathe
even though I’m listening to natural sounds like
waves and rain
wind and birds
and a break from almost not breathing
is advisable.
#‎amwriting
when courage waves at me from others’ lives
as courage more than any other thing
opens my heart
and I don’t want to be without courage myself.
#‎amwriting
when birds nest in junction boxes
and the summer heat feels cool
and work is so intense I sometimes forget to breathe
and a break from almost not breathing
is advisable.
#‎amwriting
when I remember I’m not rich
and won’t be able to walk barefoot in the Saratoga summer
and feel the wind in the pines on that plateau
that’s an ancient ocean floor
uplifted
and I want to do that walk and feel that wind.
