“They looked at it funnily,
just sitting there in the middle of the street.
It was a couch,
waiting to fulfill its purpose,
waiting for someone to sit.
And it was like it’d been there for months,
faded and tattered,
except that it was in the middle of the street,
underneath the stoplight,
with our headlights shining on it.
And we kind of sat there in our cars
and we wondered how it got there,
but we knew it really didn’t matter.
And as we drove around
we silently decided
what better a place than amongst it all,
to pause in sequence,
to stop a moment we’d otherwise forgotten.
And we wished we would have sat…
And so we wondered how long it’d take,
how many people would pass,
and how many people would pause.
To take a moment that they wouldn’t get back.
To sit in the street and watch all others at pace.
But they were too busy,
and no one sat.
They all drove past.” #lovesmith #pause #poemoftheday #instapoet #inkbleed #womenwhowrite #quote #life #poetry #fastpace #moments #igpoems #love #roses #poetsoninstagram #igwriters #busy #writersoninstagram #spilledink #poems #silence #poetrycommunity #words #writerscommunity
“And at that moment in time, I was okay with being his heartbreak. Because I knew that without it, he could not have written what he wrote, or felt as deeply as he felt. And although these feelings, I could not share, I knew he’d be better for it. And we’d all be okay. And we’d all be artists, inspired by one another.“
“He was the sort of person who picked up stray dogs on the side of the road and went up house to house for seven miles until he found the owner. She didn’t know why she couldn’t love him when she loved everything about him...”
“She had this realization as she looked out at the green, that they would all fall. Every leaf was going to fall. And sure enough, autumn came.”
I seriously love my especially this wild, young man. His neck feathers are still coming in but he's almost fully grown. You'd swear I have a roadrunner around her bc that's his posture; hunkering and running. Haha poor only child. He's at odds with everyone but his mama and they can't stay together forever. I've moved him in a pen with three girls and hopefully he will stop running from them soon. Girl Thomas is not being very nice to him. Haha. I want him to make me a whole flock of heart chickens. 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 #bantamrooster #lovesmith #heartpattern #hearts #iamthelovesmith #roostersofinstagram #petrooster #heartstagram #chickens
Soaking up this gray, drizzly, fantasticly PNW weather; right here in central IA. Ahhhhhh.
The other day my girl was wondering if we were related to ALL the Smiths in the world. I said something boring like ,"No, it is a very common name. Smith became the simplified name of all the people who created for a living; blacksmiths, goldsmiths, coppersmiths, bladesmiths, etc. Too many to be related to them all." She then stopped the whole world for a moment when she said this: "Well, then our name should be LoveSmith. 'Cause you know what we make in this family? Love." These are the moments that get me straight in the heart strings, the tearducts, and the face full of wonder.
These are the moments I live for.
