In the Canyons of Rivers

100_1053

In canyons of rivers, in the roar of the ocean, I am the earth

and you are the wildness, that washes me.

You are my healer, carrying my heart

as we live in the love, unending.

In this Place Where Eagles Dwell

Oceans 2029

In this place where eagles dwell, and prayers take wings

where the pine and oak trees thrive, holding onto solid ground

and here, where poetry is carried in the sun,

and moonbeams cascading, I know

I really know,

I am never alone.

Hawk Eyes

20160606_141413

Some of you may not know that I have a fiction blog, and that I’m currently writing a series of stories that I really enjoy, called Hawk Eyes.

The story revolves around a guy who develops some very strange eyes. He can see very far away, and has excellent night vision, and his eyes even look like the eyes of a hawk! He has also just met a young lady.

Here is a piece from the most recent segment:

I must have passed out, because I don’t remember anything before the two of us hit the ground, with a huge thud. The strange thing was, we were right back where we started. Was it a vision, or had we really turned into hawks?

To be honest, I couldn’t think straight, I was in too much pain, and as I rolled around moaning, unable to get up, I was vaguely aware of Michelle yelling at me. “What the hell is wrong with you?!!” “You almost killed both of us?!!” But her voice seemed distant and I had a ringing in my ears, so I ignored her.

As I began sitting up, she was still yelling, “You never give up, in the middle of a transformation!!” I shook my head trying to think, “A transfor…..what?” It was then that Michelle stood over me, with both hands on her hips. She said, “Trans-for-ma-tion.”, as if I needed to hear it slower. And then she did something I would never forget, and to be honest I wish she hadn’t done it…….

For more of the story, and other fiction as well, you can find it here:

I will be posting some poetry here later today.
