lessons in Patience that kentucky has taught me:

trusting that spring will break through winter.

waiting for the clouds to keep swimming and a thunderstorm to arrive to watch the sky light up with the voice of god like a child waits through previews. 

sitting the the grass trying to take a fucking picture of the fireflies to send to my
loves still at the sea.

listening to children at work tell me long stories about their days at school.

listening to their parents tell me longer stories about their days at work. 

listening to myself tell an even more monotonous story about how ended up here. 

waiting for that thunderstorm to pass.
