the fifth poem in our fall collection, Ourselves and the Leaves.
Things we can’t ignore. . .
The current state of us and the reality of our world and how it all coincides. You’ve got to acknowledge what you’re sad about, what you hoped would happen, but didn’t & what you wish could be, but isn’t.
Sadness is a good place to start. It’s the place we have to start if we’re going to genuinely celebrate at all. ❤
AND WE WILL.
But first, we boldly give sadness a place to sit next to us and we talk about its presence with each other and with God.
I am a Storytelling Poet bringing you beautiful tales of life as a woman, gardener & mother. I share personal prose often examining time and the poignant moments found in the day-to-day. Sour wild grapes, sentimentality, homemade Iced Earl Grey Lattes (the kind with brown sugar), sand, Thanksgiving, strong coffee, chickens, going barefoot, and fresh-born baby goats are a few of my favorite things in this life! So welcome to the blog and all the stories that bring us closer together if only we tell them.
