Day 141 in 2017

The freckles on my cheeks are my constant companions,  

Who never leave me no matter what;

Under the rain, 

Under the sun.  

The freckles on my cheeks are my reliable witness, 

On both affliction and gratification that life has spat,

In pain,

In fun. 

Life is full of freckles. 

You hate them, but they’re a part of you. 

Would you deny them? or embrace? 

For they make you as you.

Day 126 in 2017

Bright morning smiles gently, 

And you blossom timidly, 

In the corner of the garden, 

As if you just want to be hidden. 

Smile back at the kind morning, 

For it has so much to bring, 

To your seconds and minutes and hours.

Come out as who you are, beautiful flower.

Day 101 in 2017

It’s National Siblings Day, they say –

A kind reminder of how much God loves me. 

We’re all different from one another, 

Yet we’re the same in loving one another. 

We have our own circle of friends, 

Yet we circle one another with affection. 

We walk separate paths in life, 

Yet we never leave one another behind. 

We grow into disparate flowers, 

Yet we come from the same root.
