It’s summer here in my little corner of the world, and I’m on vacation. I’m headed to an island, with my paints and my pens and my Bear! So over the next several days, I’ll be reposting favorites:
You can tell, by the flicker in my eyes, I’m
not ready, a little bit crazy, mad
and messy — apt to spin into a storm, as
quickly as a flame-feathered phoenix, rising from hell
but you see me — know my fire — and
still you sit beside me, solid as the earth where I
find my feet — ground myself. You don’t
flinch, don’t falter. I know you have
my back, in every eruption, every rebirth, every time.
