Life moves us even when we dream of remaining stagnant, even when we want to stay sitting in the certain comfort of traffic. The days pass even as we will ourselves to remain stuck in time.

Change is constant and while it can feel like we will never move again, never feel the purity a true smile - life has other plans. In the time we spend mourning, life creates something new.

Sand Dunes

You take a week to run away from the universe & what it is trying to tell you.
You pack what later is not described as 'lightly' and try to escape this reality that you craved.
You run back in time only to realize that everyone has continued on. 
You look for people who know you best & they are there, right where you need them. 
They are saying things you need to hear. 

You escape to less.
Less movement, less scheduling, less clothing that leads to less sweating. 
You look out to a haze of thick air ahead of you and nothing seems focused.
You accept the film that has taken over your perception.

You are calm in yellow peep toe flats and long blue halter dresses. 
Your hair is long this year, your reflection looks drawn but peaceful.
All the heaviness disappears when the wind blows picks up your curls.
Everything feels disconnected, but know you are whole.
