When We Do Find Our Way

20180524_183757

When we finally do find our way, we will be amazed

at how far we have come,

how much we have learned,

and the strength we had

to overcome.

Allow your strength

to return.

Reflections

20170930_170251

When the reflections of who we think we are, become empty

do we have enough left over

to reach within?

to reach out shaping

our foundations once again?

And will the clouds in the sky drifting

be able to protect us,

as we risk dreaming?

On Our First Date

20190507_121840

She was so nervous, talking alot in the car,

at the Chinese place reaching

for my hand.

Later she said she knew

I was the one…….

but she had trouble with trusting.

I could see the gold

running through her veins,

and I knew whenever we did

eventually make love

I would need to protect

her heart, her fragile flower,

so I silently committed

my life to her.

We’ve been together ever since….

I still buy her flowers by the way,

and she really likes fresh breath…..

so I brush my teeth alot,

to this very day.

Happy New Year!

Where ever you are around the world, may your dreams take shape, and take flight, this coming year!

May you be lifted higher than you ever could have imagined. May you be healthy and strong, with creativity flowing.

And may your spirit be filled with peace. Don’t forget….you are a blessing to others!

Happy New Year!

Solar Wind – Conclusion

20170628_135215

It was her eyes really, that convinced me. Even though I didn’t know her, and she didn’t know me, there was hope in those hazel eyes.

And she had done the research, checked me out on every software ever made….I figured she did kind of care about me,

even though for me it was all new….. something told me I needed to get on that flight, the last one leaving Earth.

Within seconds I put all my grieving aside, and yelled, “Let’s go!” We jumped up, joined hands, ran for the gate, and the doors of the shuttle…..

just as the glass of the airport bay began exploding……

It was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Narrator: This couple did get to know each and are doing very well on the new planet Beryl.

It is 5 times the size of Earth with only a few thousand people. It is a little colder, somewhat like Norway.

Whirlwinds

Grey Sky

As we search for a poem, bringing shape to our whirlwinds,

our ghosting words,

refining spinning

in a furnace tested by fire

becoming word art, work of art

lines launched

beyond the rubble 

until we finally see the vision

and then,

we write it all down.

The Sun Delivers a Soft Warmth

Light Streaming

A withered, battle scarred hand reaches into the sky hoping, praying,  to find even a small portion of faith to pull down to the earth. To rebuild.

As if as an answer, tree branches part holding their pose and the sun delivers a soft warmth gently caressing our cheek.

And suddenly we know, that yes it will be alright……someday, just not quite yet……but someday……
