Ashes

Emotions

can burn.

let them

and quietly

estinguish

flames

that disrupt

the spirit

Nuture

Water your soul

as if it were

a tree

breathing life

to all in its

space

with its leaves

always green

Lucidity

Sometimes clarity
enters your life
like a
light switch
bringing answers
to questions
certainty
that you’re
exactly
where you’re
suppose to be.

Amazonia

Fires pierce through

the lungs

of our Earth

gasping for air

yet

politics

further

strangle it.

Joy

A cup of coffee

from a white

porcelain mug

bitter blended

2 teaspoons of sugar

with a splash of milk

gently awakening

the senses

Hoping the day

is as good as

the first sip

Releasing

You are not

your thoughts

Breathe

release

Clear

the static

with love.

Coração

I love you

like

the amount of grains

in the sand

like

the amount of times

the waves

crash ashore

like

the oxygen

that trees produce

because my heart

feels so happy

when I’m

with

you.
