Flowetry In Motion

These words seep out of the thin midnight and early morning cracks of time in my life. Every day these words release me. Hopefully they do something exciting for you as well.

We Beat The Rain

Grey plus grey equals grey.
Born and raised in Coos Bay.
Sunset Jr. High
funny name for a school in Empire
I guess Fog Bank Jr. High
doesn't have much of a ring.
Growing up is painful
enough without the
rain.

But we beat the rain,
learned to make our own light,
grew up from inside out.

And now we return
sharing the fact that we all faced it
together with our friendships and
squabbles,
confusion and conviction.
And we return
with tales of sunshine
and hopefully now
some color on our faces
to match that light inside
that helped us beat the rain.
