Just So You Know.

(from the archives / 2019)

You say you wish you could paint.

You say you’ve been blessed with too many moments in your life

So full of beauty

They need to be made into art.

But maybe you don’t realize

The art that you are, already.

Maybe you don’t realize

That when you look toward the sun, tiny rings of blue shine around the edges of your mostly nighttime eyes.

Maybe you don’t realize

That the way you walk with your chest up and your arms open teaches an image of confidence and humility to your world.

Maybe you don’t realize that the words “you are my greatest friend” quietly slipping off your lips

move my soul

more than any painting ever will.
