This Spring: Beginnings and Endings

There are beginnings.

You are arguing.

I am waiting,

Learning to be patient.

There are endings.

Cold and fading,


Grasping out their hands or

ceasing to be.

You cannot plan.

Sometimes life just happens,

And you find yourself

Picking up pieces:




At least I am still breathing.

Spring Equinox:

I’m close to twenty-three,

Uncertain but still here,

Frightened but brave.

And growing like a weed.

(oh god, this year)

(but here, here I am)

      Very nice piece - elegant portrayal of being both part of a cycle and also a reactionary to it as it progresses.
