Words have been failing me a bit.
This summer has been
so full of beauty,
and my heart has overflowed
with gratitude and thankfulness.
Stress, fear, and wait
paired with joy, hope and excitement:
it's been a summer of intensity,
an all-out sprint.
I feel out of time,
swirling memories from the past
are tangibly muddled together
with dreams for the future,
even as I try to be centered
around each present moment.
All of my senses are heightened.
It's almost too much,
but I wouldn't change anything.
