My Louisiana loves

Last month, my heart travelled all the way to Louisiana, USA.
It met two new best friends while it was there.
Of the sweetest and littlest of kind.
Sisters.
We bathed in the grace of cloudy skies
Tickled until our bellies were sore from laughter
Kissed and cuddled with fierce joy
Embraced the exquisite chaos of life
And remained still in the deliciousness of the day.
Yes, I have two new best friends now.
My Louisiana loves.

This Perfect

You have a sucking blister
Worn lips from drinking
Waves of practise; of persistence.
The fuzz on your newborn skin
Like the softest peach
Echoes in the depths of your creation.
Your skin
Scaled like a road map
Of the path you are yet to follow.
Your tiniest fingernails
Paper thin and torn
As you clutch for comfort.
This.
All of this.
Form the details of you.
And I photograph them.
This perfect.

And so the year ends as it did before
Even down to the fact one of you is wearing the same PJs.
PJs that are now too small for you
But you insist on wearing them still.
And that’s ok
Because it’s who you are
And it’s my job to show that.
My privilege.
My gift.
For you.
