Kind of pretty on the outside
light poking through crevices
Showing off the sparkly parts
more subdued on the inside
Words like clouds and picket fence
challenges and expanding hearts
come to mind
Clothing hitched up to cross the stream
time to get toes dirty in the mud
Breezes flapping hair and cloth
heart intrepid in the face of fear

Best friends side by side sometimes
and off on our own side path
at other times
discovering myriad nooks and crannies
as we keep going forward

Begin the journey once again
midstream at the start
Who knows where
at the end…

Today we celebrate our journey midstream. It’s our 10 year anniversary!
