The Fixer

The air is
sticky
and hot
like the tears
streaming down
my face.
Oxygen is in short
supply,
the car windows
remain sealed to
stifle my cries.
I cannot possibly
understand
my predicament
or what to do
next.
I am,
after all
an expert fixer
with the ability to
solve even the most chaotic
of life
circumstances.
It is my specialty
if you will.
But, this one,
this conflict is
one that foils
even me.
It is the fight within
myself
It is the desire to
go deep
Go where I have
yet to go before
To solve the mystery
of who I really am
All
By
My
Self.
Is there anything
more terrifying?
I drive on,
Sticky tears
and all.

The Glow

Laying amidst the
glow
Of our love
I ponder
Several important
concerns:
What if
this were
It?
What if
my life,
my precious life
consisted of only
these
intimate moments?
If I never
knew more than
a handful
of folks?
If I only ever
wrote
poetry from my heart
and chatted
on the phone
with strangers
the rest of my life?
Would I be
complete?
Would your name be enough
for me to utter?
Would our life be
enough for
my soul?
If only I
knew the
answers
to these pressing questions.
Perhaps then
I would not lay
in the glow of our love
my mind racing
with these
thoughts,
while you
slept.

The Color Blue

Blue
The color of
the ocean
the garden pool
my favorite shirt
and your eyes
Blue
How I feel when
you don’t call
or you do call
and have nothing
to say
Blue
Radiates
from my eyes to
yours
Immersed in a
pool of deep
Blue.

The Girl With My Life

Her hair is
blonde
and curly
her legs
long
and sexy.
She has my life,
you know.
Her days are spent
shopping
lunching
flirting
and looking
fabulous.
Men can’t keep their eyes
off of her
and neither
can I.
Her secret is
simple:
she is magic.
She doesn’t
care,
she is completely
detached
from outcomes
or the need for
others to
want her.
And so,
they
do.

Damn,
that girl
is smart.

I missed magical day #13, my sincerest apologies. The day got away from me, and around 2am I realized I had forgotten. It was suddenly day 14 and I simply didn’t have it in me. 🙂

Rock on NaPoWriMo.

Happy Writing!
Heather 🙂

Where I Come From

Cows
Manure
Farms
That’s where I come from.
Top Ramen
Kraft Mac-n-cheese
Hostess Suzie Q’s
That’s where I come from.
Small town
Big trucks
Little ambition
That’s where I come from.
Bonfires at the beach
Camping by the river
Slices of Main Street Pizza
That’s where I come from.
Spiral perms
Leg warmers
Aqua blue scrunchies
There is no end to where I come from.

If you prefer to prepare your own Easter Sunday breakfast, there’s a great healthy option for you to try – gluten-free waffles with fresh fruit. It’s rich, decadent and totally healthy. Even better, it’s simple to create!

Here’s the scoop:

-Use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake mix.

-Be sure to use organic/vegetarian fed eggs.

-Try unsweetened almond milk as a healthy milk option. I love Blue Diamond Natural.

-Add organic frozen blueberries (like Cascadian Farm) or fresh strawberries. You can add these to the mix, or serve on the side.

-Slather with Smart Balance butter and organic maple syrup.

-Serve wit herbal tea – peppermint is a fantastic option.

Happy Easter & Happy Eating!

Gray Hair

Gray hair,
No more

Paradise!

Seriously, when I was living in Portland I had gray hairs popping up like no other. I was continuously plucking (and cursing!) them. Since moving to Hawaii, they seem to have vanished! It’s pretty amazing. Apparently island life eliminates the aging of hair. Who would have thought?!

Silent Space

It seems as though you’ve lost your way
It seems as though I cannot stay
But here we are
One unit
Fully combined
Household goods
And sacred vows.
I wonder
Can I hold you in this still
silent space?
Can I reach you when there is
no where to reach?
When your soul
is barely audible
When my soul is
busy doing what it has always
done…
The music plays
And my hips sway
You touch my face
I am empty.
You are silent
Still.

Here’s scientific fact about what I’ve been saying all along!
I lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks when I removed wheat from my diet. Our bodies can’t process this food and so hold onto it as fat.

Read about it on Medical News Today.

Happy Eating!

Ode to Matchmaker Millionaire

Matchmaker
Matchmaker
Make me a match
May he be perfect
And rich

And smell just like a
bottle of
Obsession cologne
May he be fantastic
and loving
Oh, and don’t forget adoring

Matchmaker
Matchmaker
I’ll do whatever it takes
Makeover?
Throw my head
back in
Mock laughter?
Done and done.

Just make sure he is perfect
Oh, and did I mention rich?
