The Healing of Our World

20180930_130420

As the wind moves ripples across the lake,

I dream of days when peace lived,

so I focus

within my heart

on the healing of our world,

as the wind grows stronger

I enjoy the wildness,

of clouds shifting

and birdsong lifting.

As the Waves Roar

100_0890

After the war, with our minds at rest decompressing

from the shadows of fear,

our oceans will find us again

with the poetry we thought we had lost forever

running, thundering

in our ears,

as the waves roar

in the power

of confidence.

Turning the Pages

20170527_170924

As isolation, and a cold rain batter against our windows

threatening take to take our spring away,

threatening our joy

we know our victory

is not far away,

so redeeming the time

we pick up our paper and pen,

turning the pages,

finishing another chapter,

telling the story,

no one else can tell.

    

Have you written today?

Born of Our Heartsong

20190915_155510

In our essence deep within, our spirit moves, shifts

our vision of who we are,

as we search for the healing

and acceptance

we have always longed for.

Wordflow begins,

something of a poem,

something of a prayer

or are they the same?

And we see poems begin,

born of our heartsong.
