It occurred to me that while there is a fun element to going all out with these monthly recaps, they were previously painfully long and ridiculous (both for me to create and for you to read). Going forward, I’m going to exercise brevity.
In that vein, the most important moments and feelings, the ones I want to remember from March (and share with you) follow in images and poetry that I created throughout the month.
A bit of sorrow.
i send my sorrows up into a sky already so full of misery
that surely she will soon break
and rain down upon me
all the bittersweet tears
that can wash my pain away.
i cannot forget the dreams
you whispered to me behind closed eyes,
nor the brush of melancholy lips
trailing goodbyes softly across my cheek,
and as your fingers slip through mine,
little pieces of me die.
Family love and togetherness.
one of the best feelings
that we have the privilege of experiencing;
unfortunately, it is often taken for granted
until it is gone.
