And when a bit of sun creeps
through and shines it’s smile
on the darkness that’s
embedded itself in all the cracks-
you forget that you
left the door open in the first place
or maybe you didn’t forget at all
maybe..just maybe your hands
did what your mouth couldn’t brave.
The places your mouth wouldn’t travel
your hands freely explored.
Here’s to leaving the door open
because the light feels good
Even when the house begs to be dark
You find your way through
When the walls scream for solace and silence
In those moments you demand to be seen
Your reflection shows me who you really are
You light up the parts of me that hesitate to glow in the dark
My walls begged for darkness but still you set them on fire
I’ve never been more grateful to see the sun break the rules
I walked away singing softly…
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
So I thought it’d be fun to turn today’s photo of the day into a little game.
Also if I’m being honest, when I post the photo of the day the poem that accompanies it is always something I think of right then and there and this morning-my creative juices just aren’t flowing!!
So can you guess what this object is? I’ve zoomed in a bit to make it quite challenging 🙃
Take a guess in the comments!
I can’t wait to read them!!
Here’s a hint- I stay on top of things when I have this with me
Today’s photo is more of a conversation starter.
The week is over and tomorrow starts yet another 7 day long journey.
Before we start that journey, take a second to think about what gave you joy this past week?
What is joy to you?
And on the days when I feel I’ve accomplished nothing
I look at you and know that I’ve accomplished everything…
The scars you left me
with always seem to
tighten their grip on me
when I think of loving you again
It reminds me of what you’re
capable of, and how hard
I worked to let you go…
And though I am home, I’m not really
Every time my eyes close, I am back on that bridge
Looking at all the things I am too scared to see with my eyes open
And as expected, you were there holding my hand
Reassuring me that it’s okay to wake up
And every time I cross a bridge
I close my eyes tightly
Because only in my dreams
Could something terrify and excite me at the same time
Maybe that’s why I’ve only dreamt of telling you just how much I love you
There are some things reality just can’t handle…
Even those born to shake the earth
Can display beauty when caught at the right time
To be put in perspective
To be seen in the light
After being caught within the shadows
To be seen as the world tries to swallow me whole
Maybe there is a reason I’m here
Maybe my wings were meant to fly after all
