Small Buds Will Bloom in Silence

Like you and me

Small and discreet
practically unseen
but the buds of spring
appear in their silent robes
wearing gracious greens

Such glorious growth
like you and me
we push and pause
no longer pretending
we are ready for new




Stories that matter. Emotion first and foremost.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
