Day 221: Flowers in Bloom

The sweet scent teases,
colours overtake the eyes,
renewing the soul.

Flowers from my dad’s garden. His presence remains around us.


Day 211: Summer Winds

I spend hours trying to catch it
but it just teases me.
Playing with my dress,
and making my hair escape
the braids I tame it into.
It knocks me over,
challenging me to fight
to cross it.
But whenever it leaves me,
I always feel its warm touch.

Day 190: Strong Women in Summer Storms

Strong women love,
like a summer storm.

With passionate abandon,
drenching you with all she is.
Making your heart race,
as you feel the tempo
of her dance,
as brilliant as lightning,
and deep as thunder.
She moves quickly,
and appears suddenly,
a storm without warning,
but giving life to parched souls.

When strong women love,
the Earth is reformed.
