Suffering and Dharma

Tonight, Today, The days before, Damp with melancholy. I know it is unnecessary to be able to describe all the thoughts and emotions that come and go, but in this moment I wish I could. If I could interprete how I feel, then perhaps I can lean into what I need to resolve this. Maybe... Continue Reading →

Patience, Love Unknown

I suppose this is what they call longing A subtle yearning to dissolve solitude. I think of “him”, whom I have not yet met, Or here but slyly hidden in the shadows.

I feel small. The kind of small that sinks in your chest, your heart center. Deflated. Dejected. Deserted. I feel bullied. Settling into the isolating aftermath of standing up for right, for truth, for equality, for the underdog. I feel invisible. Like the feather drifting, seesawing, back and forth, fearing the truth when I hit... Continue Reading →

Autumn Rain

I caught myself today in the Autumn rain,  Making due with all I've got today.  I caught myself today in the Autumn rain,  And the love I've got won't fade away.  Tonight I am grateful for friendships worth missing, the comfort of fire, the optimism of sunnier days ahead, and the gift of staying in-...
