The wash on the walls

Dripping into lotus leaves and curled cattails

Infused in limestone

Surrounded by prayer

Sun yellow

Surrounded by ice

Sipped in quiet

Enveloped in hookah smoke

Cupped in small hands

Grass green

Peeking between cushions

Nestled in knee creases

Soaked by happy sweat

Crumbled under sewn slippers

Blood red

Slick on cement

Poured in chaos

Spilled in screaming

Fired from Kalashnikovs

Salt silver

Heaving in grief

Lost in translation

Human to monsters

Light to darkness.

I am a wife and mother of a 4-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl, living in Chula Vista, California! My day job is working from home as a Social Business Manager for IBM. I also maintain my Instagram account, @mommyiloveyousobig. I love weightlifting, yoga, and trying out new recipes. I look forward to traveling the world and experiencing new things with my little family. I spend my free time at the gym, obsessing over Netflix shows, discovering new places and having a beer with the hubby or pals. I love making new mommy friends!
