Tree Tuesday on my Early Wednesday Walk
This post is dedicated to #TreeTuesday by @old-guy-photos and although I am a little early, I hope the old guy doesn't mind sharing #WedndayWalk with @Tattoodjay. Would it help if I plead my case and say that I am so far behind and don't want to miss either challenge? No? Oh. I know. I know. Preaching to the choir! We are all so busy, yes?
There is never a shortage of trees here, or of long looks on perspectives in life. This tree has been here forever and a day and it has learned how to cope with everything. Can I say the same of me?
Leaving the irrational longing behind
Flirting with living instead
And just like that, this walk is done. I want to thank @Old-Guy-Photos and @Tattoodjay for their understanding in letting me slip under the ropes of the rules and duel post. Remember! Kindness counts, wherever you go. Keep on Steemin!
I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
