Moments of ordinary are extraordinary. {prose}

It’s the simple things I embrace more and more to find my center…
how the sun touches lavender blues
a gentle breeze tips the silver of green leaves
the sudden kindness of a stranger
how when everything feels tilted, until I stop
it’s right there
waiting for me to see the fluctuating dips
are just as symbolic as the days
I can eat clouds with my toes
or sip sunshine from a gossamer straw
the edges are very real
the plunge into icy cold is as shocking
as running through hell
I’m so grateful when words can find me
and anchor my pores with
handfuls of warm sand
while the waves
slowly kiss
the frayed edges
and I can breathe.
