Roar

By: Sabrina Herrmann


Yesterday the sun was finally thick enough to swim in, as if you could place a boat in it and coast.

I want to wear it like my favorite sweater and carry it in my backpack. I want to hold it in the palm of my hand a take a bite out of it like an apple.

I am finally a woman who learned how to feed herself – light, bread, curiosity.

Sometimes you don’t realize you’re famished until you’ve had a proper meal.

That’s when your heart really starts to roar. Once it realizes what it has been missing.
