Out of Emptiness

Tenderness March 15, 2019

And so I learned

to soothe frightened parts

of me

through my willingness

to face each moment

as it came,

knowing at any point

I could stop and gather words

out of emptiness

to soothe what couldn’t be

reached in any other way.

Always Okay

Reflections May 25, 2016

If I could reach back

to the me I was,

I would send

only gentle whispers.

I would send

the kind of messages

that only she

could understand,

the subtle kind

that have no words

and leave no trace

of doubt

that we are

always okay

in the deepest way.
