Shape of Light

September 25, 2016

Early this morning, there was fog & as the sun rose around us, everything began to glow & it made me wonder what this world will become for us when we remember in our bones that even the darkness is just another shape of light. Shape of Light  – ©2014 Brian Andreas –  posted with permission.

Open Arms

September 11, 2016

If you are lucky someday, you’ll stand, surrounded by people you know, or in the dark of night, quietly by yourself (it does not matter where exactly) & Life will fill your whole self & it will spill out a little with each breath you take after that & you will give your promise to hold the world safe, for as long as it takes

& then, afterwards, you’ll go about your days, wondering what has changed & you won’t see for a long time how it happens in small moments.

When you smile at someone you do not know. When you speak up, though it is easier & quicker to just keep moving. When you stop & hold the hand of a friend who can no longer go on & you speak in a low voice that only she can hear & you say these words (or something like them): I would not want to be in a world without you in it.

& if you are lucky someday, maybe after one of these moments, you’ll understand why Life filled your whole self & all you could do was open your arms to hold the world close & remember how to Love. Open Arms – ©2014 Brian Andreas –  posted with permission.

Riding Home

You may not remember the time you let me go first. Or the time you dropped back to tell me it wasn’t that far to go. Or the time you waited at the crossroads for me to catch up. You may not remember any of those, but I do & this is what I have to say to you: today, no matter what it takes, we ride home together.Riding Home –   ©2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

New Age

We’re already in the new age, she said. What does that mean? I said. It means we can stop waiting & start living, she said but after she left, I still waited a little while more just to be safe. New Age – ©2016 Brian Andreas – posted with permission.

I’m on my way to the future, she said & I said, But you’re just sitting there listening & she smiled & said, It’s harder than you’d think with all the noise everyone else is making….

This is a loose-fitting body, so it’s still comfortable after a long carbohydrate binge.
