she feels
undone.

nowhere else

My sister Patience recently illustrated an alphabet of North American flowers. She sent me a full set and I’ve scanned a few of my favorites to share here…

I confessed

singing along to some song
the air seemed full of happiness
her voice sounded bright
her heart was racing
she’s capable of anything

and
the moon shone though the clouds
he whispered something to me
