I hope that you are well
and happy
and happily satisfied
exactly where you are
I hope you are spending every moment
in the very spot that you stand
With love
On this day.

We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. 
That's what connects us -
that we're all broken,
all beautifully imperfect.

I am letting go
With each blossom that unfurls to my eyes
and each petal that falls to my feet
loved ferociously these passing years
the possibility of leaving them behind
hanging heavy in the fragrant air
This dirt tucked tight beneath my fingernails
and smeared abundantly across my children's skin
A thousand goodbyes I am needing to whisper
Before me lies a vast expanse of unknown blessings
as surely as behind me lies a path
of known ones
There is only one way to begin
and that is
with a breath
