It is funny
the lives we live
the friends we cling to
and the aspirations we have
lost and found along the way

I have a love of characters
When I get bored (have insomnia)
I read books by self published authors

A good author creates a story that takes
me out of my pain, anxiety and depression

Whether a new language is
created or a different world blooms
I can envision myself as an omniscient viewer
in a sacred space free from personal tragedy
familial hostilities and my mistrust and
fear of people

People wonder why I
like gardening rather than mowing
It’s like my interactions with seeds,
seedlings, saplings and roots can heal
my sadness and suspicions

It can and it does

    1. These neighbors would have to speak to me first. I wave, I get nothing. I say hello, I get nothing. No hint of friendliness, neighborly acquaintance… I no longer have time or effort to waste, but the article was amazing.


Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
