Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

She comes into your life and brings nature’s blessing. And with her entrance comes a curse of wanton passion. The grass is still alive as it blazes in the sun. The chorus of our laughter floats gently in the Spring breeze. We are the definition of love and our hands are linked as we dance amongst the… Read More »

Burning Sky

Where do rainbows go to die as fire washes away the sky. Rolling waves of broken thunder, I stop and stare in open wonder. On a forgotten shade of blue as fury covers all we knew. I shield my eyes from the glaring whys and watch as a spirit dies. An orgy of color so… Read More »

Adopting Yourself – Part 1

The ironic part about being an adoptee is that the first and final steps of our lives are the same. Just as we must accept being adopted in the first place, we must also accept ourselves for who we are in the end. That acceptance, that journey, can take a lifetime to occur and not… Read More »

I’ve never liked the sound of children crying. I’ve always avoided orphanages or hospitals when I can. Something about the sound of unhappy kids in a forced situation sends my mind scrambling to my memory box. I pry it open with hesitant care as I look inside my past. A past filled with those same… Read More »

Left Behind

Reminders of a forgotten day. Showing me what I forgot. I left you beind on my way, with a plane ticket I bought. I returned to your smiling face. Reminding me what I missed. Your ever present, calming grace. Received with a father’s kiss. But then I found a simple note. Words written and felt.… Read More »

It is far too early in the morning to make decisions that last a lifetime and yet you did. You made our decision for us as you packed us away with our memories. I sometimes wonder if you held our hands as we walked away from the life we knew. Having little idea that we… Read More »


Floral without a flower. Can I still bloom? Standing by a completed womb. I can’t help but to ignore… Falling petals, how they implore, to last just for a second more. Fallen beauty, how do you stand? A trembling body without any hands. How do I make you whole again? When does the cycle of life… Read More »

What is your goal with your blog?

People often email me for advice and their emails are usually very “general” in nature. They will ask for “blog advice,” but what does that really mean? It comes down to one question for me really. What is your goal with your blog? It is an important and necessary question because your goals and reason for… Read More »

Fallen Beauty

I walked upon a fallen star and sat to contemplate once more. How beautiful a torn wing can be as it extends past its meaning. We wept, remembering the feeling of floating. Of flying. Fallen, but still beautiful. You are my fallen beauty. -OM 44.1 @smokendust

Mark me

I’ve never liked having stuff on my skin. I’m not sure if it is an overreaction to something that happened as a child or what, I simply hate being marked on. Drawing, face paint, ink, marker, tattoos look cool I just wouldn’t get one. I wonder sometimes if my dislike comes from the burn I… Read More »

Dreaming dreams that cannot lie, I shed a tear but do not cry. I see my reflection in my eye from hanging sorrow as it dies. A chandelier just for me, reflections I see because it’s me. And with a blink it crashes down. All of me falls without a sound. Falling fallen, how they… Read More »
