In the Light of Your Eyes

20170715_202822

Where does love dwell when shadows linger

within our frame?

Mostly within the holding moments,

the silence of embracing

and in the courage

to reach for each other’s hand

in the middle of the night,

and in the light

of your eyes My Love,

as we awake, being filled

with another sunrise.

In the Ocean Where Light Began

100_1471

It was a darker rain, and darker still

yet, it was the light in a poem

that held his thought, safely.

He refused the storm of the day

and the torture, the turning

of the night

impressed with a spark

or was it a wave

of light?

His mind did open

and he bathed

in the ocean where light began

unashamed

of his victory.

Happy Easter, Happy Passover

20160514_124347

To all those celebrating Easter today – Happy Easter!

And I have a number of Jewish friends so – Happy Passover!

May you be wonderfully blessed during this very special time of year.

And if you don’t celebrate either day, may you also be blessed this spring,

as we all behold the beauty of the earth reborn. May hope live in our hearts.

By the way, did you know that the Last Supper was actually a Passover Seder? It’s true!

The Man You Have Called Me to Be

100_1102

As I get older Lord God, I am more amazed at how good You are to me

and my family. I know this earthly life is but a mist, rolling in

from the ocean, and soon this frame of mine will be

taken away, only to be given a more beautiful presence.

May I always be worthy of being with You,

and may I always be – the man

You have called me to be.

Walking with the Sacred

100_1487

Oceans will hold our prayers, as we walk along the shore

breathing in the peace of rolling waves, washing us.

And forests will hold us, safely

in our weakest moments,

until we have reached the top

of the mountain,

fully aware

and confident,

having walked

with the sacred,

that yes, we can trust,

the Divine

with our future,

as we lift

our hearts to the sky.
