because i am yet unfinished,


i will allow these cobbled walls to sing their
bumpy beginnings, give their mortared veins

a chance to breathe. let us fill these center
places with salt, silt, sky; stain them with

truth and the moss green of breeze. can you
see that i am waiting to be something greater,

knocked down built up held fast by a grounded
sea? sit here with me awhile, and listen. I am.

  1. I love this. Too many women are trying to stay teenage – they are missing so much from life.

    “stain them with
    truth and the moss green of breeze” … Beautiful.

    “can you” … “can” always equals “butt,” to me 🙂

    “can you
    see that i am waiting to be something greater”

    “… and listen, I AM” … so many meanings in this ending. like, you’re telling God to listen, you’re saying that you’re listening (to Him, I presume) … also, “I am sea” … so much to love here. Gorgeous, gorgeous work!

  3. This is beautiful. I like how at the end the “I” is capitalized. “truth and the moss green of breeze” – that’s my favorite phrase.

    That “moss green breeze” is gorgeous.

    When in Rome… well actually a few years ago… you could see some of the older building materials in the newer construction. Not everything that is torn down is just discarded. I wondered though at the history of those oddly placed puzzle pieces.

    You are very kind to enjoy my mash-ups. I hope you had a great summer. I was busier than I thought I’d be. And still didn’t get half as much done as I wanted… Cheers, Jules.

    Oh what wonder and beauty and maturity in these words. I’ve never been so happy to be the age am. xo
