Beholden

I am grateful for the early morning intention

To feed my daughters earth’s fruits

At lunch when I am absent

my love is omnipresent

I am grateful for the pesky wind

That musses “perfect” hair

And shouts sweet nothings in my ears

All are signs that I’m alive

I am grateful for the cuts on my fingers

They scream silently as I work

scabs, wrinkles, dry cuticles – 

My hands are marked with ravages of time and labor

  1. such a beautiful – every day kinda beauty in the day…

    esp. liked: when I am absent – my love is omnipresent

    and side note – not sure which kind of small cuts you have – but this “liquid bandage” product really works wonders for me – and if you have not tried it you might like it
