purging

When darkness has been dripping from my pen, I must purge it by writing sweet things, beautiful things


Desperate to cleanse

The sweet smell of a chubby baby
The heart of a newly-opened rose
A first kiss
Coffee with cream
Miss Fanny's Hat
An old, wrinkled couple, holding hands
A long-awaited package
Sun rays shooting from a cloud
The smell of newly-sharpened pencils
A man's sturdy shoulders
The sea
Ruffles
A picnic in the afternoon
I Love Lucy
A book that makes you forget it is a book
Strong voices, singing of their Savior
Sparkles
A double rainbow
Long walks
A worn Bible
Glass
Unsoiled hearts
Gingham aprons
Chicken and noodle soup
Floppy sun hats
Freckles

Relief
