Blend

i started 

as a flower 

planted,

watered by

the rain.

i fell into

the ocean

rooted,

i blended

in with spring.

i stayed and 

did not wish 

to rust

blooming,

i blended with  

earth dust.

Self-reinvention

My endless intentions to discover myself. I am lost somewhere between the lines and the blank spaces of time.

Alternate realities of my identity.

I become her and her and her, but where is she? The she who is me?

I stare at my feet, tired and worn from long days and sleepless nights.

I am constantly reborn.

Feelings

I stayed until the water ran cold

 Tears combined with shower rain

cascading over my face. 

 I thought I could erase feelings

of sadness and frustration,

and move towards  

unapologetic elation. 

 

Memories of the pacific shore

and ocean salt filled my mind

as I traveled through time. 

Letting each desperate thought

brush over me, then they each

were quickly released. 

 

Working my way past dissociation,

accepting my feelings as transient.  

 

~ poem titled Mindfulness / photo taken on the Pacific Shore at Leo Carrillo State Park.
