I sit still at times, and I think about life’s moments.

Hot flashes wash over my body some of those times.

And I will remember moments that built who I am now.

Sometimes I fill with gratefulness, others more with regret.


It’s then that I curl in and out to release the tensions of those moments.

And I cry out to release reverently all that is the awfulness of life.

I wake up and purposefully remember who got me through it all.

And I head-high walk forward humming a peaceful, lovely, loverly, simple tune.
