in bad times

on the stairs

guarded

by the climbed-over, pushed-on

baby gate

my lonely camera sits

collecting dust

slowly bleeding

its battery

waiting

for a better day.

  1. oh, mama! it’s hard to stay true to your passions when you’re in the thick of things with kiddos. selfishly, i love when you go on photo binges because they are all so lovely. but i know that your soul needs it, too! bittersweet free time is coming soon!
