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.

In the Space Between Darkness and Light

20170531_193842

In these times of a hidden dawn

we can find ourselves

in the space between darkness

and light,

and yet we move forward anyway

knowing heaven is not silent,

and we have the light

the strength 

of each other.

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.

As the Waves Roar

100_0890

After the war, with our minds at rest decompressing

from the shadows of fear,

our oceans will find us again

with the poetry we thought we had lost forever

running, thundering

in our ears,

as the waves roar

in the power

of confidence.

In the Poet’s Heart

100_1652

In the poet’s heart we hold the light dancing with colors

filling our phrases shaping,

guiding, directing the surge of words

through us

the intensity into our pens,

confident.

And in our decreasing

we seek a river

or an ocean

dolphins playing in the waves

to fill us

once again.
