A Sparrow Takes Flight

20190603_164850

As the wind moves through the trees a robin is released,

and a sparrow takes flight

while beautiful songs travel

into the blue sky.

And a dragonfly hovers,

watching me.

    

Note: This came to me on my front porch today.

Hope Begins to Fill My Eyes

20170628_132542

With wings outstretched, tilting my head, then banking to the left I break the pattern, the shell encasing my sky,

refusing the bonds or to live in the darkness of being discouraged… hope begins to fill my eyes,

with new life until finally the horizon comes into view, and I am free.

Amen.

The Prayer Stone

20170628_154233

In search of the prayer stone this morning, there were no ancient sages whispering mystical words from the dark corners of the forest.

And the sun was dull at times, as clouds ceased the calling of flowers, even their strength was diminished. Shadows prevailed.

I closed my eyes, waiting…..and then a glimpse of a word. So I decided to write a poem today…..after all.
