Open, my Heart



My heart is full of love.
Sometimes, often, 

Drip-Dropping.

Over the edge, 
like periwinkle paint on chestnut. 
Blue is my color again.  

Darker, stormier // Brighter, funnier
Realizations of the world today.  
Being a mother means a world of emotions. 
Anxiety frequents with long, deep breaths to cope.

I open up through writing, 
Risking rejection, fighting perfectionism & comparisons.  
Like performing, it ain't easy, but it feels right for me!  

::My heart shattered at her first cry.  
I couldn't stand to hear the sound!  
Yesterday, she fell hard on the trail.  
Took the wind right outta me::

There will be those falls & disappointments & scares

And...
Adventure!

My Dad says, "keep your expectations low & work hard."  Trying!  
*
They say, "you can light up someone's day with your smile!"  It feels good to smile.  Feels better to laugh.
*

Open, 
my heart! 

Make room for more patience,
More truth, more trust, 
burn a light of peace.
