Our Own Wings Living in Our Hearts


As our spring brings new life, and the poetry we so desperately needed

rises as a Phoenix, the words will surprise us, taking us,

farther than we ever could have imagined,

up and beyond, straight into the heart of God even. 

But only if we have eyes to see

our own wings


in our hearts.

My Faith VI


My faith tells me that fading into the wall, doesn’t bring the healing

that even as our scars itch, some still with a bandage

we need to move forward, with our brightest, sharpest

sword and our shield lifted high, until

we are fully embraced by the light

and filled, with every color

of the rainbow.
