You said you miss those times when I used to be all about roses, butterflies, and rainbows. Oh, but I still am. Except I’ve grown to see that roses have thorns and sometimes butterflies have broken wings. Even rainbows have shades of gray. Yet they are perfectly beautiful just as they are.

Author’s Note: this piece was inspired by a fellow poet and follower who said he sometimes misses my earlier writings. Thank you for being there on my journey.


it’s been a while

since you smiled

all over us

you’ve gone missing

somewhere between

the moon & the stars–

the sky

has been asking about you

the clouds wonder

when you’ll peek out

and say hello–

come back to us

and spread a little happiness

a little brightness

for the world surely needs it
