Japanese Maple

Every year I would travel to my grandparents’ house in New Jersey

And when we would get to the grand house

I would see my favorite tree

Japanese Maple.

I loved how the light from the backdoor would shine on the colors of red and yellow.

I would walk in to the kitchen the I would see the tiny kitchen where my dad’s family grow up.

And I would turn my head and see the hand stitched plaque

“There’s no place like home- except grandmas.”

And I knew I was home.

Beautiful.

the clouds moving across the pale blue sky, dripping rain down on my patio. My cats sleeping next to each other, butt to butt, when about two years ago they couldn't stand each other. They breathe in

Cold Rush

Time to increase down the aisle. Opening up to something else that I can't see, to feel the assault of love slap me in the face.

Madness

Expressions formed on my flesh leaving being bruised marks, carried out of my sight. Sly smiles creep up my legs causing a handicap, crumbling me to the ground.
