A Brighter Sun

20180428_171710

When we are filled with love, poured into,

we will have a stronger walk

a greater acceptance of others

and a brighter sun

to carry

within our lives.

Within Each Poem

100_1467

Within each poem, can be both beauty and pain,

a more peaceful flow to a jagged edge

as the writer twists

and turns the words,

searching

for the healing

enfolded.

As Chipmunks Burrow a Little Deeper

20180204_121733

A shifting drift on the mountain ridge maneuvers

as a fresh layer of frozen white settles into the Earth.

The bluest of blue skies seems to hold in the coldness,

as chipmunks burrow

a little deeper, to escape the cold

and the watchful eyes of the hawk perched high

in the pine trees.

Winter Still Speaks

20180204_121727

It was in the winter when I first began walking,

seeking the journey of a quiet spirit,

the healing of silence in the woods,

the wholeness of a snowfall

in the purity of cold air.

And still today

the wisdom of a young man’s heart

can defend, provide a light

for this old guy to follow.

Winter still speaks.
