REPEAT

Just when you thought you learned the lesson, you find you need a repeat. It’s okay; growing up to yourself takes time.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 

MOONBEAM

 

broken,

over cereal

on a moon-lit counter.

 

it’s 1:30 am

and I find

I am not uneasy

with this

unsleeping

of my mind,

 

unsleeping

of my body

that aches for yours.

 

there were moments of light;

I saw them radiating from within you.

 

those moments said,

yes, stay

and see!

 

and now that seeing

has eclipsed the moon you

might have hung for me,

 

I will have to be golden

without you.

 

remember the elbow grease

of my mother’s good sense,

 

fall apart under the beam of moon

lighting me over the counter.

  1. Oh Jen………

    You’re on my mind as you continue with this process……I have a little ache in me for you right now.

    Love you.

    • Hi Sista, Thanks for your thoughts but I’m really okay. I actually wrote this one years ago, and was reminded of it recently looking through old memorabilia from home. The painful relationships are the best catalyst for change. It was more of an homage, really.
      Love you!

  2. Hey Jen,

    It’s good to see you back here! Great to read your words. Your voice is distinct and strong.

    I’m blown away as always at your ability to cut to the core of a feeling and express it artfully with the right amount of subtlety and the right amount of punch and mystery… and that “what’s it all about?” feeling.

    Hope your Sunday is full of good surprises!
    xoxo m

    • M, xoxo to you also. I am still planning on a real phone call. Soooon. Thanks for stopping in. Loved your porch picture, by the way. Very inviting. Thanks for sharing……Love ya. J
