Things They Never Tell You .


The downside of attempting to be a so called "writer",
is that when it comes to returning from literal journeys in life,
the suitcase may be empty
but the unpacking is far from over.

So here I am, Lord,
before a Niagra of words,
holding out my little red sippy cup...

realizing this could take a while
and hoping that the force of it all doesn't drown this weary traveler.

I have missed you. I am glad that you are back. I am waiting expectantly like a little girl for my letter. I cannot wait to share your stories with you when you do decide to unpack them...
