The Journey of Your Light


Don’t bury your pen just yet my brother, my sister

the journey of your light has just begun

and there are still songs

that need to be written,

and still music

in your heart

from the mountains.

The Light of Your Own Being


“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.”

Our Poems Ascending II


Through the smoke and ruins of our world, words

will call us born again, with our poems ascending,

our hearts will be lifted

proving to us once and for all –

there is still some beauty

and we are still alive, ready to accept

what we used to call hope

and the spark of the living

once again.

A Blessing for 2018


May you be inspired each new day of the coming year,

seeing past the mist of the unknown, instead focusing on stars

and rivers, and flowers in the fields.

And may you be so filled with light

that you cannot help but be a positive influence

on others. May you have good health,

and everything you need.

Walk strong, walk with confidence

and have a wonderful New Year!


Happy New Year everyone!
