Friday Shootouts - Power (Zest for Life)

I took power to mean "zest for life". And this is where I get mine.

Hanging out with people that know what it means to be alive and have fun.

Drinking tea, receiving inspirational quotes, and photography.

Reading as much as I possibly can.

And good old sunshine when we are blessed enough to see it!

I love all of the things that give you zest for life. I drink tea all day long, I consider myself the queen of quotes, I'm extremely passionate about books and I like to be around people who know how to have fun. We have something in common.

Like the feet shot.

Tea is my thing. I like a little java in the morning and sometimes some at night but all day I am a unsweetened tea junkie.

Like the books as power. They are indeed very powerful.

Thanks for joining in.

The knowing.

You settled into my dream. Stared me from my sleep. And told me it was time for a birth.  I asked if I could stay by your side.  A tender “no” was pushed from your lips. I stood to leave while the others danced around me. Your fear and my rejection walked me out of that dream.
That morning, grief was born. It poured from my body for 7 straight days.
You ghosted my life with coffee, clowns, and diamonds - A knowing that slipped between us. Then a person of your making began to stain my thoughts. He received the words I couldn’t say to you. And we connected over the beauty and pain you left behind.
We both miss your song.

Impaired Judgement

I live a life of impaired judgement. That’s why the wildest flowers rush to bloom in my arms. And stories filled with truth boom inside my ears. Your stories. His. Hers. And, my stories.
I can’t sleep with all these rules. The air is too thin. I want to learn to thrive in the thick of it. And, melt magnificently in the heat of it.
Unravel and tangle into all new knots. Find a way to slip through the cracks and expand to create space. Experiment with a stance that is completely still and strong. Then, crawl desperately towards the feet of everything I am afraid of.
Thrash around. Kick up dirt. And, rise again covered in messy, beautiful life.


Press the seed of this story just inside my lips
I will nurture it with warm breath and a low hum
Let it dance from the tip to the cup of this tongue
Then tuck it safe inside my cheek for later
When it's time to swallow it whole
