I do not spend my life wishing for things that I cannot have (right now), but as the rain falls, along with the temperature, and snow starts to swirl in the darkness, it does not hurt to remember that there are places like this. I remember this morning. It was warm, with very little breeze, just enough to make the palms trees whisper in that special language that they have, and I was standing on my little balcony in Marina Cay, watching this single sailboat wend its way out into the channel to have adventures.

Marina Cay, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “It is the tenderness that breaks our hearts. The loveliness that leaves us stranded on the shore, watching the boats sail away. It is the sweetness that makes us want to reach out and touch the soft skin of another person. And it is the grace that comes to us, undeserving though we may be.” — Robert Goolrick

Daily gratitudes:
MKL
A light day at work (after two months)
Turquoise
Head tilts
Listening to the rain before it turns to snow (10 inches of snow)

 

Surreality

The shadows surround each parked car,
glooming up,
swallowing hoods and fenders,
lurking in front of darkened headlights,
stealing away as my eye
catches their evil.

Innocent bunnies
bare fangs
and have a Mexican stand-off
in the middle of the street,
dashing off angrily in opposite directions
when I approach.

A dog barks deeply
the sound lingering
in my backyard,
spreading out thickly through the
cool, damp, air.

I do not have a dog.

It is snowing in May.

I tremble from exhaustion,
fumble with the light switches
curl up in a soft bed
and live inside my dreams.
