In the Wild Wind Down by the Lake

20190427_101610

In the wild wind down by the lake today, my hat blew off

and flew away, while the Mallard snickered

and the heron smiled silently.

I know he smiled

he was holding back a laugh.

I saw him with my own eyes,

no really, I did.

The Light Will Draw Us Closer

20180930_130405

In this evil day of black shirts, and dictator winds, empowering

even weaponizing storms,

the light will draw us closer

providing strength

and confidence

to even seek the mountains

and rivers once again.

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?
