#1 Rekindle

And suddenly I look in the mirror and see your face again

I’ve missed you

Time and experience have changed some details but those eyes are the same.

I see you

I’m old enough to be your mother now

I’m sorry we lost touch

But I’m grateful to see you again

We have work do to

And look, the sun is shining

After that grey and miserable morning

And I sit a little deeper into the bones because

More and more those bones and this skin feel like my own.


  1. ah,
    but hose bones are borrowed,
    and to the earth you must them return,
    and ‘you’ shall move onward,
    forgetting bones and pain and being.
