about me

i breathe
the same air as you

i walk
with feet that love to feel the earth

i write
with a soft lead pencil

i dance
as flame

i eat
slowly with my eyes closed

i sungaze
as though melting with a lover

i thank
god for music

i pause
to inhale blossoms

i listen
with my whole body

i rest
in nature’s ceaseless arms

i talk
with insects

i laugh
more freely with age

i fall
and rise up again and again

i cry
without hiding

i fear
harming what is fragile

i nurture
what i love
