Poetry ~ Tied in Knots


I am
tied in knots!

Bound.
Entangled.
Tethered.
Limited.

The more
I struggle
the tighter
the knots.

If I could
just …

relax,
breathe,
clear my mind,
open my heart,

allow
the knots
to loosen,

allow
the ropes
to fall.

Surrender.

I could
be free
from the
prison of
beliefs
that have me 
tied in knots

In Memory ~ Boogie and Bubba

Bubba, Daddy & Boogie Hiking in the Cascades

I remember you arrived the summer
that man walked on the moon.
Boogie took the lead,
cheeky and pink.
Bubba minutes later,
scrawny and blue,
but together you made two.
Twins.
A special bond
only twins can know.
As the eldest sister
with a twin of my own
I knew all too well
how close you would grow.
But what I couldn’t know
was how short your
time would be
both leaving this earth
long before me.
In the prime of
your lives…
within two years
of each other.
Off to explore
new worlds
forever brothers.
Today is your
birthday and I
want to sing
your birthday song
and tell you how much
I love and miss you, and
in my heart, you both
live on.

Happy birthday Scott and Todd ~ Lots of kisses from your big Sis
