Reunion

I want to pull a handful of dirt from the earth and listen to the heartbeat of the world for a little while, and remind myself that I live here, and not in this fucking phone. It’s easy to forget sometimes, with how much life I pour into these texts and Snapchats and Facebook updates, but I know that I came from this earth. I feel it in me. When I sit beneath the sun and let it hold me like my mother used to. That’s when I know for sure that I was born of this dirt. That’s when I know that the land is my brother, and the sky is my family, and everything around me is just more of me, too. I think I’m going to get high and have a reunion today.

        You got it. I just think prose poetry is underappreciated.

    Such truth in these words. I recently deactivated my FB and only have my blog on WP now and NO other social media accounts. I needed to do exactly what you’re talking about. Find grounding. I love how you put this into written words. 😊

        I think so. A necessity I believe. One of my aunties does a month of no social media every year. To reset. 😊

  18. Yes! This was so good… It’s important to look away from screens sometimes just so we don’t go crazy. I wish I had lived in an era without smartphones.

  20. We breakup everwinter,
    and yet every fall,
    some say divorce is ugly,
    but better to love her when she’s pretty,
    than to have her at all…

    digging your site man…
