Once We’re in Love


Once we’re in love it all makes sense again, doesn’t it?

Our questions light up with answers,

our oceans seek infinity,

and even mud changes

into the soil of the earth,

while storms clouds

are rolled away….

all simply from a smile

from the one

we love.

Forest Meditations


As I entered the trail, lingering March winds pushed the canopy of tree tops one way and the other,

all at the same time, yet I was quickly surrounded by the gentleness of the forest,

a safe place deep in the coolness of the earth.

The wildflowers were blue this time, while the vanity of the woodpecker could be heard

in the distance. And I wondered how far a prayer could travel, certainly beyond the poplar and oak trees…

I understood then, how peace walked this earth, from the very beginning.
