From Garden to Sea

Seek me in the garden, let your fingers brush against my soul as if you’d found the rarest of blooms and were intoxicated. Let my petals stretch towards your touch.

Careful of my thorns, they may prick you without meaning too. Born of pain and anger they are ravaged by time.

Pluck me from my daily life and take me on an adventure only you can give, our laughter blending together in joy and our tears in sadness.

Plant my roots deep. Ground me in the earth, so secure in my foundation you could seek shelter from all of life’s storms in my covetous branches. My vines wrapping tightly around your aches and pains.

Walk through my leaves and see the memories of my past fade into the dreams of the future. Scatter yours throughout so that they combine to create a forest of beauty. From black as night to white as snow.

Walk on the path of the present with me, learn my curves and dips as I study yours. Over my brooks and streams, below any attempt at shallow depths until we reach the cliff at the sea. Take a jump with me and fly into the endless depth of life together.

A Voice

Their voice dances down my spine,
A soft whisper that draws me in closer with each crushed velvet word.

It brings a smile to my lips and soothes the ragged edges after a days jagged cuts.

Draws a sigh of longing from my soul and wraps me in a sweet embrace.

It’s edges curl around my mind, creating a need for more…a never ending stream of sound that invades my body, mind, and soul.

It makes me sit and stare, the sounds of others muffled in comparison.

It’s a sound I’ll never tire of. One I’d rather hear a hundred times over a million others.

Each time I do, I find another reason to love it’s speaker and the way their voice traces patterns on my heart.
