new life again and again

Sometimes I'll be driving, or drinking, or watching a movie, or skipping class to run across a snowy beach in solitude, and I think: I'm going to be a mother one day. How can that be? Here I am speeding through yellow lights, trying to drown out my stress, grasping at inspiration, and desperately wanting to feel alive, and I'm going to be a mother one day? What do I have to pass down, or share, or teach?
I have so much to learn myself; how can I be sure I even know who I am?

the crows come today

I wish the crows would come today,
Take hold of my clothing and carry me away.
I would learn all their calls,
And be called,
Queen of Crows.
I'd wear their fallen feathers
And live amongst the trees.
I'd wear all the treasures
My crows bring back for me.

summer reminisce

Eating my breakfast at the kitchen counter, I just happened to venture into the photo gallery on Mom's phone and found a few from the summer; seeing them brought on quite a wave of hopefulness for the next to come. I often think about warm weather and how good it will feel to step onto the earth in my barefeet again.
I'm also in a good mood because I finally finished reading Pride & Prejudice, and the anxiety of wanting Darcy and Elizabeth to just get together already is now soothed.
