In the Coolness of Leaves

20180707_161359

With the windows to my soul fully open, I notice how poems and prayers take shape as I walk, in the deep forest,

seeing beyond a thinner veil, wrapped in birdsong, embraced by the coolness of leaves, and painted…

by sunlight streaming. All whispered into being…by the voice of God.

Storm Meditation

20190530_144112

Leaves dance to the rhythm of the rain, while tree limbs sway and I realize,

something within me enjoys the wildness of the storm, thunder rolls and boils in the sky,

yet I’m not afraid, instead…amazed how creation nourishes the earth, as the rain becomes gentle again.

In Diversity There is Strength

20180731_124239

In this age of racism and strife, I wanted to make a statement that all people are welcome here!

Regardless of your race, or where you are from, or your language, or religion, or if you have no religion,

you are welcome here. Unless you’re a bully! No bullies are allowed on this site. 

Diversity is a strength. We each have something important to contribute to our world.

I so appreciate all my readers!

Thank you so much!

The Light of Wisdom

100_1708

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Great leadership seeks wisdom from above,

and maintains a confident yet humble heart.

Amen.

We Share Something Beautiful

20190918_095327In all that we see around us, and in our world, does our wordflow, our paintflow, become affected?

We often see with our hearts – so how do we respond? I wonder at times if I should stop blogging.

I won’t replay the news but so many horrible things are happening. Racism, killings in the street, disease taking so many away, and an economy faltering.

How can I write, or attempt to write something beautiful in these difficult times?

Well maybe, just maybe that’s the best time to write, and create artwork.

We don’t turn a blind eye, yet we offer hope by sharing our hearts through our creations.

And hopefully……we share something beautiful…..with our world.

Amen.
