the coolness of untainted air

seeps deep into your lungs,

as glacial peaks and frozen lakes

become your ladder rungs,

reaching new heights - expanding your sight,

a horizon, soon undone,

with visible breath and stolen speech -

eye-level with the Sun.
climb on.

the bloom and shape

and way you grow,

evoking blush and calming woes.

balancing both the delicate and bold -

reminding admirers:

to mind how they hold.
always you - all ways the rose.

some days you wake wondering what it all means.

some days you wake loving everything.

some days you wake - calling back to sleep.

some days you're guarded - some days...meek.

however you are - each day when you wake...

remember: you are - for goodness sake.
love, You.

stones in the ocean -

jagged steps of sediment,

worn smooth by the waves.
be smooth.

break from the day to

mend all your fences,

sort out achievements,

and travel expenses.

you are a wonder.

your mode is persistence:

both, in times of peace -

and in times of resistance.
rest well, young soldier.

warm hands fingerprinting crisp glass.
oscillating breaths -
between clear and opaque.
a calming condensation.
an understanding of balance.
no matter the cold - your radiance endures, sweet child.
