"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen."
"…By the time I recognize this moment,
This moment will be gone.
But I will bend the light, pretend that it somehow lingered on…
Was there a second of time that I looked around?
Did I sail through or drop my anchor down?
Was anything enough to kiss the ground?
And say I’m here now and she is here now"
Caramelized onion, fig + goat cheese finger sandwiches with fresh mint lemonade
I saw the blackest black I’d ever seen
rolling calmly by as the earth slanted for us that night.
Silhouettes of cliffs and trees opened up the year for you and me.
Down on the cold silt in cold air you ran and I stood,
while fireworks and firecrackers popped five miles away,
and we chased them together instead of each other.
