The Forests Remember

100_5643

Every year the forests remember their calling,

to encourage, to inspire us,

freeing our minds, our hearts

with the sound of rustling leaves,

and their colors

breaking loose,

setting our spirits free.

There Will Always Be Flowers

20160509_124150

In spite of the darkness, there will always be flowers

that bring us joy,

we will always smile, when our lover does too,

and we will always rejoice

when a cancer patient

survives.

There will always be light, there will always

be love,

and there will always be joy,

even peace

so wonderfully,

in spite of the darkness.

More than Just Arrows

20160709_140954

He really was a warrior, not just in his dreams

so she was willing to accept his shield

having fallen, into the strength of his arms

and he always found the answers

to his questions in the deep oceans

of her eyes.

And together they became

more than just arrows flung

into ambiguous darkness,

and they learned that love

is greater – than any

strong tower that loves

the night.
