Because Of You, My Dear One


Right now sitting on my kitchen counter are carrots, bananas, one very ripe pineapple, a bag of parsnips that need a good washing, half a bunch of cilantro, five golden delicious apples, and three fragrant lemons Hansel and I stole off of someone’s tree yesterday.

I have to put it all away in the frig, but I love looking at it first for awhile.

The colors are vibrant and lush.  A painting waiting to happen.

And I can’t help but wonder, what the hell is happening to me?

It feels like all of a sudden I long to take in everything.  I fall in love with a vegetable–get gaga over the shape of a fruit.  Enjoy the sound of the wind like never before.  Am captivated by light and it’s different seasons all evolving in one beautiful day.

As my belly gets bigger, his kicks get stronger, and the nights now happen in stages–I am transforming into another version of me.

A version I would have never expected before–a version I would have never anticipated or even dreamed of being.

For the first time in my life I truly feel my soul.

All because of the soul
I’ve been blessed to have living
for just a moment
inside me.
