Sonni and Hazey Dayz

Love lights my dayz, smoke enters us into a haze, leaving us to contemplate each phase.

With words we say, I’ll love you always.

The Sun sets here on the plains, as the moon peaks out to show her face. I love the night in every way.

Bring me your ear and I’ll spin you a tale, pour more wine and sit for a spell.

Bring me closer to things of wonder, wiser and younger. 

I talked to a tree and she said listen hard, my leaves may fall but I still stand tall. 

Don’t trip over your roots they show you where you came from.

Fire or Hail I’m still a tree. 

Be stable, strongly stand up for what you believe and be constant.

One day we’ll grow into mighty trees until then they are my shade, and I am grateful. 

I’ll read your leaves and grow just like I should. I’ll never stray for this is my Foresthood. 

Moon Chile you speak within me open up and pour out a sea. 

Fly with me over the moon, take my hand, we’ll use my broom. 

Faster than lightening, Louder than a Black Cat’s cry, We will be one and soar past our forgotten sky.

All your craziest dreams could come true, if that’s what you want I’ll show you too.

 As these words like string come un-done, I repeat what I mean, love is my light even in the darkest night. 

No fear in these eyes, they’ve lived before, they know all the lies.

Letter to my Dad

Dear Dad,

You were the one I looked up to as a child. I defend you when she would say otherwise.

You took me to work with you and let me drive Bulldozers, Caterpillars, and Backhoes.

You bought me camo coveralls and took me hunting. You taught me how to fish on the banks of red clay with chicken livers and earth worms.

You let me live with you when you lived on a mountain. We hunted deer, turkeys, and rattle snakes together. I helped you build our first house and I was still in diapers.

I would love a lizard to death and you’d bring him back to life, by going outside our house and catching me another one but never telling me till I was older.

You took me mud boggin before it was cool.

You are the only person I’ve ever seen climb safely all the way to to the top of a tree and then make it back down in one  piece.

You spoiled me rotten, especially when you saved up and bought me a ferret, who until his life was done you took care of.

You’re the only person I know who would buy a ferret three different kinds of food cause he only liked certain parts of each, or who would take all the chocolate off a reeses cup just so the ferret could have the peanut butter inside.

Until last year I thought you had disappeared forever.

When I found out you were in jail, I was just glad you were alive.

I know I haven’t made the greatest effort in staying in touch with you over these last few months and I’m sorry. I will do better. I just wanted you to know things were never shitty when I was with you. You were the best dad I could have ever asked for.

I will be in touch soon and I will always keep you in my heart.

With much love, Your daughter.

Things left un-said

I told you so, even when we shouldn’t.

Gas, Bills, Food… too broke to eat.

Working hard is it ever enough?

When do we stop?

Regrettable spewed words

Leave scares of yesteryear

Growing plantlings pop up to life

Hold on it’s an experience, everyone should have at least once.

As I breathe in, poverty is knocking on our door,

Not recognized by our state, where’s your compassion?

Hurting for an existence void of Nothingness.

A yearning for knowledge, even in it’s purest forms.

A blooming flower has no choice but to stay rooted and flourish.

Like the young flower she must flourish but she has uprooted…

And isn’t it Ironic that the colors red, white, and blue represent Freedom,

Until they’re behind you….
