The Encouragement of the Sun

20180930_130420

As we turn towards the encouragement of the sun,

strengthened words will flow

into our hearts and minds

until they take shape escaping

as a poem

or a prayer.

The Day When Thunder Was Born

20160514_175924

Back in the day when thunder was born and lightning let go of the shaking,

we did run with the wolves shoulder to shoulder,

through the forest bending

while the Earth felt our ascending.

Until that day – when violence

entered the world causing

our separation.

Yet some wolves still howl today

lamenting, longing

for their human brothers running.

Even the Sun Surrenders

20170609_205848

Even the sun surrenders to the night,

as young lovers dream of colors streaming

through fountains,

and ducks nestle into their feathers,

while frogs take over the serenade.

A cloudless sky prepares

for the victory of fireflies

while the lake embraces

the reflection of stars

and the moon,

those softer lights.
