Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie/She's Always With Me

she’s always
with me
the little girl
that no one sees
she was never
enough, still
trying to
catch up
I look away,
but I know
she’s there,
whispering
my alone
reminding me
following
me
home

torrent churns

(through) green, blue,

lashing upon itself,

reflecting (me) invisible

flow stop crash turn twist

journey  ~ day and night,

(lost) shadows, white water

secrets, sun (behind), and

(always) the pull of the

(drowning) water. (shadow

me) 

Sun Grew as Flower Grew as Me

Image

Sun grew as flower grew as me.

Rays that stretched and reached,

pushed through the wormy earth

to climb on stemmed leg.  We drank falling 

water and embraced warm. Nights,

we faded, rested silently, to be

re-born at dawn. When at last we opened,

our faces turned to one,

flower, me, sun.
