Her Blue Still Has the Power


She is so strong, so beautiful, small and determined

refusing to listen to voices,

telling her “You shouldn’t be here.”

Her blue still has the power

to attract the bees,

and her favorite human’s camera

with compliments

about her beauty.

Our Own Wings Living in Our Hearts


As our spring brings new life, and the poetry we so desperately needed

rises as a Phoenix, the words will surprise us, taking us,

farther than we ever could have imagined,

up and beyond, straight into the heart of God even. 

But only if we have eyes to see

our own wings


in our hearts.
