The Light Will Draw Us Closer


In this evil day of black shirts, and dictator winds, empowering

even weaponizing storms,

the light will draw us closer

providing strength

and confidence

to even seek the mountains

and rivers once again.

On a Quiet Wooded Trail


Perhaps all we really need is to lose ourselves

on a quiet wooded trail,

lifting our heads to the warm caresses

of the sun on our faces,

to fill our lungs with the air

from blue skies,

to embrace the power

and the beauty

of all that was made.
