500 Days of Sobriety


Today’s that day! And I can’t get “500 Days of Summer” out of my head. Which led me to…

500 Days of Seasons
the coming, the going
the wishing away and the savoring
the noticeable and the unseen
the fruit and the labor
the unknown and the reassurance of return

the never and the always
the desire to do more and nothing at all
the alone and the community
the head and the heart
the angel and the beast
the action and the sitting back
the encouragement and the judgment 
the perception and the truth
the reading and the listening

the beauty
the blessed
the escape of a new way
the belief in something more, the forever grateful
the absolute intensity of coming into your full power and cutting the weeds away; 
to emerge into the meadow
dawn
dusk
dew.
You.
