I was beautiful today (Poem)

I was beautiful today
with my earbuds in and songs in my head
songs that reminded me of autumns long ago
rock and roll anthems that taste like spices and smell of earth
or maybe it’s the fall sun that caused colors to jump out at me

There were no dark shadows
to clouds over my head or over my heart
and felt lovely against my warm skin as I breathed in the sweet air
with bruised and healing lungs

Today I was free
with a smile on my face as music dripped from my lips and the sun upon my brow
I walked with certainty upon the ground with my shadow behind me
I was neither lost or saved but I sure was found
today in the courtyard of my little apartment
under the cloudless sky – I was beautiful – as I walked in the morning sun
