When time is ripe

When time is ripe
And tenderness your middle name
I will surrender to love’s counsel
Soar with you into the light.

Finding love again

And I said to my body, softly, “I want to be your friend.” It took a long deep breath and replied, “I have been waiting my whole life for this.” Nayyirah Waheed.

Start where you are

“Start where you are.” Arthur Ashe.

Be gentle with yourself and start where you are.

Empty city

Not a soul moves in these grey concrete hours
And the beggars who sit in these dry streets
They too have left the day to fend for itself.
