Never lost

Never lost
I am never lost
when I lose myself
on a map

Stay leveled
collected
pull out my compass
for the right direction

I may lose in moments
but I am never lost

Stay calm
because the sun moon stars
are always there to
guide me

Radiance
vibrations
colors, tone,
shapes and forms

Subtle hints
ingenius clues
I will always find a way

I may lose in moments
but I am never lost

Water

I found you
out of the blue

You catch me
like lakefront waves on a windy Chicago day
crashing, swallowing
my feet buried deep in granular rocks and minerals,
shells.

Unanticipated.
Turbulent currents slowly spiral
into stillness
water retreats
dig my feet out from under

And I feel my mind shaking
my hands trembling
These waves tugged at my heart strings.
These waves unearthed my feet,
exposing me.

I’m here.

I walk towards the still water
brush my fingers along the line where water meets sand…
chills.
Haven’t felt peace quite like this before

And I just know.
You are water.
