Jamie Langley

a shift in my life left an empty space
I missed caring for her
a layer in my life lost

more natural with my daughters
the connection extends beyond words and space
though the umbilical cord has been cut

what they need is found intuitively
not through a great laid plan
is intuition led by the heart in the context of the head?

a lesson taught goes well
a hike to a desired summit
with an aging body, the desire to reach the destination keeps me going

the hoja santa leaves show me they survived the not so cold winter
mint sprawls out from its corner
they thrive as they push out from the soil
