An Alternate Reality

Archive for February, 2014

Why do I write?

Just to get the cobwebs out
Just to get the synapsis firing
Just to hear the words I write
and get them down on paper

Just to share the morning sun
Just to give a warm embrace
Just to know where I belong
to make it all worthwhile somehow

Just because the thoughts are here
Just revealing bits of me, so
Just this moment I can be
the one whom God intended

February Yearning

When will it be spring?
When will I emerge from this frost?

When will the flowers find their way up?
When will my heart?

I think the world is frozen,
but then I see bunny tracks and squirrels.

How do they survive?
How do I?

When will this winter be over?
When will my creativity thaw?

I feel a little seed inside,
hibernating…waiting…
