We Recognize the Light

20170929_151331

In our deepest parts, in our farthest memories

we do recognize the light,

and in our flow we know,

that no trauma

will hold us back forever,

because looking up

we remember.

On a Quiet Wooded Trail

20170628_154153_002

Perhaps all we really need is to lose ourselves

on a quiet wooded trail,

lifting our heads to the warm caresses

of the sun on our faces,

to fill our lungs with the air

from blue skies,

to embrace the power

and the beauty

of all that was made.

Earth Day 2019

20160514_175724

And the sins of the fathers are being visited on us their children,

while the Earth continues to be ripped and torn,

I can’t help but think of the people lost,

swept away by storms,

from the changes in our air,

as dark clouds still gather

while ignorant bullies hide

their head in the sand,

lacking even a speck

of empathy.

How many more people

will be lost?

Happy Easter

20180428_172027

We are so amazingly loved……aren’t we?

And contained within

is the mystery discovered.

Even the renewal

of earth declares

the shape, the sense

of wholeness.

Happy Easter!

I have many readers with a different faith than my own, so I wish everyone here the blessings of renewal and peace!
