i am not in a good place tonight
but this low spot is good because:
I caused it
I know it well
it does not last long
and there is a good reason
and a deep sadness that is at its root
or easily solved, or even mine to take care of
but sad, and difficult nevertheless.
It felt good to say it here.
I am sad, but tomorrow I will be happier.
somewhere there is a wild flower blooming
that needs me to appreciate it.
sparkling jewel in the desert,
I am on my way.
