Pure Light

Light Streaming

Pure light will always make shadows,

as if covering us

with a set of wings

enabling, showing us

we can walk through it

causing our heart

to have confidence.

Ghosts Often Keep Silent

100_5694

In the mist, in the density of fog, ghosts often keep silent

taking away even the joy

of birds chirping

preferring a silent forest,

yet keeping their presence

their shadows as they

blip

in and out, waiting

saving the scare

for tourists with too much cologne

and clean,

expensive tennis shoes.

Whispering into the Woods

20170929_145444

When I whispered into the woods today,

into the peace,

into the quiet waiting,

poems escaped

and prayers took shape lifting themselves

far beyond the tallest trees,

and I realized I was filtering

through the sunlight and the shade.

We need both really

to understand

our own

heart language.
