Today is World Poetry Day, and though this isn’t quite as elegant as my college writing, it is very raw and real to me. Grab some coffee and enjoy (or don’t, it’s not too upbeat).
It is much too much
To leave this bed, enveloped in your love and reminded of your life
Not because I’m sad
But because of the simple weight of the fragility of this world
Too heavy on my mind, swirled and twirled
It is when I am the happiest
When things are going well, too well, so well that my heart may burst
When I feel too heavy
Who I love, who I am, and who loves me, feels much too much
As if I am dying now, as such.
I write for more time
To pretend hopeful for a future I know won’t be there
So fragile, so unsure
is Tomorrow and Life. I am not done, that much I know
Yet here I sit, willing my will to go.
It is sadly a chilly 28 degrees this morning in Northern Missouri, but we still have signs and smells of Spring around every corner!
Not my normal avenue of photography I like to share on here, but damn I love this guy.
I wish the photo was of a better quality pixel wise, but I think this perfectly captures what we both love about one another the most: his intensity and dedication and my passion and spirit.
That means swimsuit season! Here’s my visual motivation for the start of my ‘oh shit I’m supposed to wear a swimsuit in two months’ season, hopefully it helps someone else too!
This season isn’t about weight loss, this season is about toning and becoming more comfortable in my skin!
I am still struggling with what the purpose of waking up every day is, but for now all I know is that it is an EXTREME blessing and rare opportunity. I would love to stop worrying about why and start focusing on how. How am I going to make the most of my time? Show love, create love, and inspire love. I need to help others, love my family and creatures resoundingly, and write or create something that will impact another soul in a truly positive manner.
Also I miss spring, and so does my camera.
So I am getting more serious daily about my photography and I have noticed 2 critical things. 1) I need to bring my Cannon camera around with me to truly get quality photos, my phone is disappointing with photo size in the end. 2). I over edit most of the time.
My question for you is this: out of the following, which appeals to you the most? The first is unedited, the second edited a step further, the third the most.
Stormy Midwest Afternoon.
