Bliss, A Poem

Little moments sometimes hold the most happiness.

The excitement before a thunderstorm,

That periwinkle above the sunset.


The distant sound of music coming from the boardwalk

On a warm summer evening


A sleepy cat’s little paw cuddled upon your feet

As the sun peaks through the window on a Sunday


An embrace with someone that you know you can’t be with

But you love them with all your soul


Your favorite book in hand, staring at rain drops on the window

Of your favorite café


Crickets whispering upon the breeze

As stars shine for you in an endless sky


The smile in your grandma’s eyes when she reminisces

About an innocent past


Running through an open field, warm sun, hair free

With no place to be


A carton of chocolate ice cream to yourself

As your favorite movie plays


Those uncontrollable bursts of laughter with friends

On the nights you never want to forget


Saying “I love you”

And meaning it for the first time


That moment that you realize that life is short, tough, uncertain

But beautiful nonetheless


Something we search for,

Wait for,

Chase.

Minutes, seconds, unexpected.

Freedom within, freedom without.

Bliss.

Visit again dear friend, don’t be a stranger.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
