The Field...


My heart wants a field...a field to get lost in...to run in, to play in. a field of sunflowers, of blue bonnets, of rolling hills. A field that holds seating for the sunrise and the sunset, for the stars and the clouds...

My heart wants a rain...a heavy rain that carries the lightness of refreshment...my hair longs to be drenched in the messy freedom of tangles...a rain that never floods my steps but enables me to skip and jump...

It's 4:23 am when i write this...and this is where my heart longs to be. I breathe in, I breathe out. I can see the hills that I long for and the pink sun descending over the marsh...I smell the fresh rain...I feel the release...



No matter how many miles you run on a treadmill your heart won't fall off...

No matter how much you push your muscles they won't throb out the thoughts...

No matter how loud you turn up the music it won't cover the resounding realization...

And no matter where I go, on nights and days like today, my heart finds its place in that field...
