The way my mother takes of her glasses

to look at the screen

because she can’t see up close

even though she has bifocals

How my parents will watch a movie

With their phones in their lap

Makes me sad for the future

Because why can’t we just watch tv

Without a phone?

I am guilty too.

I watch television with my phone

In my lap

Just incase I get a snapchat.

I check Instagram

When I am bored of the show.

But I don’t dare turn the television off

Because then there will be silence.

And I hate silence.

365 days

When you really think about it

A great deal of things happen in a year.

One whole rotation around the sun

Giving us

Winter Spring Summer and Fall.

 

People change and grow

Just like plants reaching for the sun

Trying new things

Jumping out of planes

Trying new food.

 

But also people lose.

We lose jobs cars and

Each other

Even when we don’t want to.

Like a baby bird jumping from the nest for the first time

Thinking there will be a splat but at the last second

We spread our wings and fly.

Rustic Homes

For Laura

I always wish I had a sense of style when it comes to decorating.

I usually put things on the walls I like

Which could be anything from

Movie posters

To

Fancy works of art.

I don’t live in a rustic home.

I like the rustic look

But I also like to do what I want.
