Be•ing

I’ve talked to God More than I’ve talked to people 

and found that 

he talks back to me

Through strangers telling me their stories

Through this constant presence inside of me that picks me up when I’m on my knees

And through my never ending seasons

Especially when I forget how flowers have the ability to blossom in spring 

How do you explain the effect of the mote of dust that I am, in size, that ripples outwards, ever so beautifully?

Passionate People

I’m interested in
sunsets and road trips
and people who don’t
settle for the ordinary
and those who believe
in myths and magic
I’m interested in
the ocean
not the shore and
late-night phone calls
discussing life and death
and everything in between
I’m interested in
conversations that
discuss the characters
in books in such a manner
that makes them seem alive
and I’m also interested
in storytellers
I’m interested in taking risks
not playing by the rules

I’m interested in those

who write love letters
And in those
with a beating heart
that is constantly desiring
something, somewhere
because I do not
settle for less
