Falling on Sundays

Sundays are becoming my most loved day of the week 

I welcome it with enthusiasm lately

It tastes like sweet beginnings

When anything can happen and I wait in anticipation

It doesn’t lead me anywhere

Nor do I impregnate it with ideals or goals

And on this Sunday 

I spent time as usual on the beach

Dancing to silly tunes, running away from foamy waves

That wants to chase me up the shoreline 

It feels like worship

My mind is blanketed by the sea 

As I dance to the tunes like a silly girl gone wild

Bystanders sometimes will wave at this crazy woman dancing 

They don’t know what I know

The dancing isn’t from joy or longing

It’s about sensation, forgetting and being all at once

I must say I get to live the choices I made

And that’s something, that sure is something 

As the sand stings my naked flesh

I think about valuation

What I value 

Who I value 

It always comes back to you

My greatest love

What I learned

What I know

What I gave up for you

The chances I took

The risks!

Oh the risks!

How l loved you!

Loving you is the best lesson I ever lived

I wish you could have basked in my love longer 

Understood its depth

I am awed 

How can love like this exists

How I was blessed to have known it

How I loved you so much!


Intrinsic value: value for one’s sake, for who you are

Extrinsic value: what do you bring to the table that I value

Yet, I loved you at your worst. Imagine that!

A thinker. I analyze everything. I live in my head, sometimes it is my protective mechanism and most times, I just like it. My mind has not failed me yet... My life's mantra: "Treat others as you would like to be treated". Blessed be! Fave quotes:“I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me. All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.” Jackie Robinson
