Moonflowers by Nampu Katayama; Bing Images
These days my heart is aflutter and excitement is coursing through my every cell it seems. I feel almost electric and distracted at times too. There is a strong memory of these feelings from my past and yet in a way I’m more in control of my faculties than I was before. Perhaps it’s because I realize the impermanence of relationships. No-thing lasts forever but I’m ready to take advantage of what has presented itself and to see where it goes and I along with it for however long it lasts…and enjoy the journey.
summer’s moon flower
wilts as the days grow shorter
refreshing breeze stirs
