Run Through Rinse

Image result for rinsing apple

i shower several
times a day,

not long soaks,
just quick
spits,

like run-through
sprinkler
rinse..

if i paused for long enough
to stand at sink, fruit
in hand freshly
picked..

i’d roll it under
running tap

to wash debris from travel,
bruises from rough
handling,

if i plan to take these
grease ball
streets,

may as well
shine

like fruit i’d
rather
eat.

2020-12-10 – I Believe, Can You?

Circular Color Burst Cheerleader Silhouette 2 Painting by Elaine Plesser

yes, you-
you can do it,

i don’t know what
you’re doing

yet, my trust in you
is more than
certain,

so i’ll just twirl around
and throw my
rosy cover
over

fear’s
chilly feet

if there’s a thing
i know,

it’s potential, and
i’ve seen your
reach.

2020-11-18 – Head In the Garden

i feel like letting go
of hanging
off..

moments that cling to
boots like brown
sugar snow,

wiping frostbitten
soles ’til they
don’t..

leave
my stain,

i’ll eye a wilted
rose stem,

until it flowers
in my brain
again.
