At the window watching raindrops

At the window —
Watching raindrops glide off the leaves
They’re
Sweat dripping off your brow
As you make love to me in the thunder
A bird plays in the puddle under the tree
Its skinny legs dipping in life
Beak happy, wings at the ready — being
Just being
Our love, present, moment
Now
Always
Don’t think
Flow off the leaves
Slide
Land gracefully in the puddle of life
Ride the ripple
Love
Always love.

Bloated

Bloated —
39% with food
78% with guilt
for what I’m doing to my body.

Stop with the negative
and the crazy.
Get on with the
love & heavenly!

P.S. Yes, I know, it doesn’t add up to 100. It’s okay — it’s metaphorical math. Numerical poetic license. –tg 🤪
