falling.

Standard

forsythia bright in my quarantine kitchen

 blossoms have begun to fall

everything is temporary.

 

“Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” – pema chodron

falling.

Standard

it was a quiet, simple act

a couple walking in my direction

 stopped

 the man bent down

to tie his companion’s shoe

and in this tiny moment

revealed his heart. 

 

“let me tie your shoes. i don’t want you tripping and falling for someone else.”
