a letter.

Dear Arianna,
Was there ever a time that I failed you? Have I ever forgotten to taken care of you? Have I ever lost faith? How many sparrows do you think you are worth, my child?
Rest, little bird.

I was a brute beast before You.

rest from the North wind.
rest from the South wind.
rest from the East and from the West.

"Yet I am always with You; You hold me by my right hand."

2 teeny, tiny

boots by the
curb on the
perfectly placed,
side by side
as if...
though I hesitate to say
as if the legs once inside the shoes
attached to the body of a babe
had been snatched up into the sky
and left me here,
too busy writing
to realize
my own

a million miles close

When I saw you for the first time today, it was good.
My heart did not leap inside of my chest.
The way I thought that it was supposed to.
There were no butterflies.
And yet,
And yet,
Even though I stood skillfully,
On my own two feet;
[My two legs
Were no match for your eight.]
I tripped over my words.

What does it mean to truly love again?
&How do I befriend this child who has changed almost beyond my understanding, and how do I intercede for this child who has not felt Your eternal peace in over twenty-two years, and how do I agape this child that makes me smile and hope against hope?
Have mercy on us.

Psalm 91: "He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge."

Slow Cure

has some sort of disease where you hallucinate and start not to believe in love, but after a year or two, or even sometimes ten or twenty, it cures itself and all that`s left are a few little red spots that twinge and ache whenever you get too near someone else that has the disease and it`s all you can do to stop from reaching out and holding them close.

and the sidewalk holds diamonds like a jewelry store case

I went to Knapp's Castle this Saturday with four / sevenths of my family.
I found assorted jewels. [apart from the ones with me] Sure, they may just look like pieces of glass to some, but just you wait!
