I’m 28 years old, female, from the United States. I’ve been a DailyLit member since August 17, 2010. My reading interests include science fiction, and classic american literature.
I am the water in my father's tea.
Warming his heart with a drink of me.
I am the water dripping off olive leaves,
In my mother's garden, silver signs of peace.
I am a cool towel on my baby brother's brow
Wiping away worry, the only way I know how.
I'm light like warm air, my head up in the clouds.
But I am also rain water soaking into the ground.
Tickling tree roots, sleeping through the dawn.
Waking up slowly like dewdrops on the lawn.
I float down a river and rush into the emerald sea.
I dance to my own song, suspended in the breeze.
When I'm sad it hurts, I cry, quiet 'til I freeze.
I crack with pain and anger until I fall into your glass.
Your sweet embrace. My loving cup, I'll drink you to the last.
