Reach

As only the lucky
breathe foam
only breathe
the rhythm of
give &take
salt &knees

As only the lucky
drink morning
in a bay the shape
of a perfect
half circle
a cupped hand

As only the lucky
live&breathe
I sometimes stand
in a doorway &reach
for the sweep of
a blessing

As only the lucky
&I know how
we extend flesh
like seaweed
fingering
liquid sunlight

day 4 NaPoWriMo
for Real Toads

  1. All is nice for the lucky. We had a nice top down weekend too. Went to Independence (Texas) to see the fields of wild Bluebonnets. It’s been too dry and warm, no freezes, this winter for a good seed germination. The Texas Bluebinnet is our state flower.
