Small Stone August

Digging for quarters
at the gas station,
my fingers close around
a brown leaf
with our initials
wreathed in a heart.

Another Stone

Bed made,
clothes unpacked,
pictures hung,
tears shed,
hold her tight,
one last time
before I drive away.

A Small Stone

Taking it slow,
gently probing the hole,
tender and swollen,
it will take time for
the empty socket
of my heart to heal.

Awake August Challenge- Warm Rain

Warm summer rain,
kisses my skin,
the taste of liquid sunshine
on my tongue.

Awake August- Smooth Stones Challenge

Low tide,
river grasses,
shimmy and shake,
in the morning breeze.

Baby Flies Away

Suitcase open on the floor,
empty hangers,
vacant drawers,
counting down the days
’till my baby leaves the nest.

Smooth Stones- Awake August

Day Five:

Inhale as an invisible band                                                                                                             tightens around the chest,
struggling to breathe~
