my attempt at blending the arts I cherish
I Take Pictures In My Mind
Can I remember three small faces under the swishing skirts of an afternoon tent? Can I re-hold, as an awkward twelve-year-old, my red and wrinkled youngest brother? Can I sail the Florida shore at windy, singing twilight, haunted by a dolphin love?
Can I crawl, with all my strength, into my parent’s early morning bed? Can I bow jubilantly before a sea of clamorous playgoers? Can I breathless walk through a Friday afternoon rain on a vacant college campus?
Can I understand what bravery is when I conquer the towering magnolia on our hillside? Can I loudly remind little brother of bumblebee harm? Can I whisper far-away stories to myself under Barney-printed sheets?
Can I hold your brown hand in mine just for six more minutes? Can I make you a coffee while we exchange bright smiles about just breathing this now? Can I love greater than I did when three boys and two girls gathered, in harmony, around one joyful piano?
Can I truly capture a passing sight or a sound? Can I keep forever a memory inside of myself?
what if poems could be symphonies, and people their orchestra?
My semester abroad living in Bath, England and traveling across Europe.
Beautiful photos of hiking and other outdoor adventures.
