Strong Hearts Embracing

100_1053

The stronger heart has embraced surrender

to the power and wholeness of love,

as if each river was a washing

of our eyes restoring

our vision

so that our spirits can truly see

and soar

even beyond

our most devastating of ruins,

confident,

really knowing

all is not lost.

A Walk in the Sun

20180428_171951

An amazing thing happened to me today.

As I was walking, the sun was shining,

the wind was blowing,

dandelions

were popping up everywhere

in the deep deep green,

and cherry blossums

appeared out of nowhere.

Then suddenly…..

a smile appeared

on my face!

Can you believe it?

The Primal Dawn

20191109_154744

It was one of those primal dawns,

with the world not yet awake,

and a chill

in the cold night air still lingering,

the earth was so quiet pausing

without rotation,

without wild revelations

only the beginning of the sun

in the quiet of the night ending

bringing a thrill, a wholeness,

even without chimes,

until one single robin began

to sing her chorus,

lifting the sun even higher……

and eventually

a new day began.

May Peace Flow in All of Our Hearts

20190719_151541

I’ve been writing alot lately about the oceans. The oceans can fill us with their depth, their calmness and strength.

And they are endless, inspiring us, encouraging us that everything will be ok.

And spring is bringing us new life. The earth is renewing herself, and us so beautifully.

Rivers are also wonderfully capable of filling our hearts.

Even though I enjoy writing in many genres, now is not the time.

We all need hope, courage, strength and encouragement, just to make it through day by day.

May peace flow in all of our hearts.

Amen.
