Poem: Mind

Mind


Falling asleep,

I thought about

the mind being

like a cloud taking in rain.


[image error]I thought about bringing the mind to hover

over a lake of kindness—

a basin of sweet water to soak up.


The post Poem: Mind appeared first on Katherine Grace Bond.

“And I couldn’t love a lie anymore.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“2If he wasn’t who he said he was, wouldn’t he have been honest with me by now?”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“Maybe love is just hormones or endorphins—not some great force all around us. Maybe that’s just nonsense. It’s always seemed to me that love is about being found—the way you might find your missing cat because you knew he had a notch on his left ear and came to the sound of knew he had a notch on his left ear and came to the sound of pebbles rattling in a can. But maybe that isn’t the way things work. Maybe you can only be “found” for a little while. Just like
Joseph and Isuza LaRonge discovered, “forever” isn’t really forever. Everything ends. Everything is lost eventually.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets
