Self-Description #1

I am a rosey blush with teal sparks,
a curvy goddess
that swirls and bops to 
a jazzy ballad in a smoky room.

I am the number 18, full of beginnings,
a roll-top desk with hidden compartments
living in a sunset
in a sultry, mountainous forest.

I am a deciduous tree
shedding fear each year with
passionate acceptance hidden 
behind my eyes.

A curious conundrum,
I let go of nothing
and everything.

I've forgotten how to forgive myself, 
and then I remember 
that my soul is old
and knows all the answers 
to my questions.

Thanks, Joylin.

Hey, were you serious about quitting your blog?

Yeah, I was. But as a dear friend so kindly pointed out, "I knew you (me) couldn't shut up." ;)
