Turning the Pages


As isolation, and a cold rain batter against our windows

threatening take to take our spring away,

threatening our joy

we know our victory

is not far away,

so redeeming the time

we pick up our paper and pen,

turning the pages,

finishing another chapter,

telling the story,

no one else can tell.


Have you written today?

In the Power of Green

20160709_140126In the power of green filling the leaves

a new strength, born again

a healing of our spirits,

an assurance

that no sickness is forever

that life runs deep

and strong within each

of our frames, even more

than the forest decorated

with oak and poplar trees.

It is spring, after all.

Hope and power, both together.

Born of Our Heartsong


In our essence deep within, our spirit moves, shifts

our vision of who we are,

as we search for the healing

and acceptance

we have always longed for.

Wordflow begins,

something of a poem,

something of a prayer

or are they the same?

And we see poems begin,

born of our heartsong.

Reaching for the Wholeness


Hurting yet hopeful, eyes wet with tears

we take our first step,

leaving the shredded behind us

reaching, moving forward

towards the healing

the wholeness

of who we used to be.

It takes courage, doesn’t it?

We all go through terrible times. I would encourage you to take the first step, which may include a doctor or counselor.

And nature is a wonderful healer. Sometimes a walk in the park can be the beginning.

And always remember…….you are loved.
