A Tangible Presence

20170715_202838

As the sun sets, after the storm

something similar to hope

can be born,

a tangible presence

in the winter sky.

Within Our Journey

100_1123

Enfolded within our lives are the mysteries of the heart

and emotions

poems already prepared

waiting

until we discover them

within the trauma

and victory running

through and within

our journey.

Walking with the Shadows

20160514_122212

A twig snaps under my foot, as I stop in mid-stride

a crow drops noisily on a large branch,

bouncing, looking, inspecting

my progress, while I let my foot down

gently. I stand remembering

the First People,

Crow, they were called

and that chief,

named Standing Bear. Shadows

moving through the trees,

leaving only feathers –

the crow hides quietly

this time on a taller branch,

perhaps there was a ghost

brushing

against the ferns.

I start walking again, silently

with shadows blending.

Celebrating You!

20170703_214719

Well I’ve been blogging for 3 years now and I wanted to say thank you, to all of you!

Every one of you is an amazing artist/photographer/writer! I wish I could follow each one.

And I am so happy with the diversity here. My readers include, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and those with no particular faith! Yes!

That is the way I have designed it. I want many groups of people to feel welcomed here.

I’m having a wonderful time, in spite of a number of obstacles. So I will keep writing poetry, and viewing your work.

Peace to you, and thank you so much!
