I'm just excited about this poem:)
It comes in light bursts,
A smile for the bluest of skies and
driving with the windows down weather,
the breeze gently touching your face, the sun
warming your lips and
that song that was stuck in your head all day
finally playing on the radio—
so you turn it up
and sing until your voice disappears.
A secret laugh with your best friend,
wild over the top
hysterics over something
only they would understand.
A perfect, oh so succulent bite
From a perfect meal
only mom could make.
A nod from a stranger, a driver
that stops traffic to let you get
to the other side.
A lingering hug
that you feel long after it’s over,
A glow from the inside that carries
throughout the day
Impenetrable, because it is
Contagious, floating feeling
It comes in light bursts
Waking up from a tragic dream -so real-
she had fallen, sobbing,
felt the cold hardwood floor pressed
against her cheek,
wet eyes fluttered open,
but I could have sworn it happened.
A look of disappointment from mom,
who stands weary
against the pristine kitchen counter,
her favorite spot.
Nostalgia- walking by an old friend,
slowing down, but speeding up
when you realize
you have nothing to say.
The constant motion,
feet pounding on the pavement
head down, intensely rushing
from one place to another,
no time to slow down
take a deep breath
and watch the delicate snow fall.
Sleeping all night, but feeling tired,
the dulling fatigue settles in,
like a rock,
and the motivation
starts to drift away…
