Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson

Our relationship is like this:

I am both the child and the vase

and you are the mother

who always forgives the baseball

soaring through the house.

You hold all of the valuables

with hourglass palms.

Sometimes you are a vase too

yet I remain clumsy.

You lack the capability

to fix this vase,

so I do not blame you

for hiding out in the top of the china cabinet.

But sometimes I too am a vase

so I will hide out with you,

forever trying to hold myself

and sometimes you

with the baseball's

hourglass palms.

Forgive me when I shatter.
