As I Sat by the Lake


As I sat by the lake today, a prism of light reflecting

I wondered how water could hold

so much calm within us, for us,

filling our very core

giving us a sense

of wholeness.

And somehow the water….

becomes part of us.

In the Whispers of the Wind


In the spaces between snowflakes, winter’s breath unfolded,

reminding us of prayers breathed,

from our wilder moments,

when we actually did

have some faith,

when snow covered mountains

held us,

and God spoke healing,

in the whispers

of the wind.

Welcome to Ancient Skies


I have alot of new readers lately and many of you are international, so I just wanted to say, welcome to my blog!

I’m so glad you’re here! Unless you’re a bully. No bullies allowed!

I have more than 2,600 posts here, mostly I write poetry now. I do write some minifiction.

I love combining the ideas of nature, spirit, wholeness, healing, and how words can encourage us.

Hope is one of my biggest themes! Here is a small sample of the way I write:

Winter peace speaks to me,

within my spirit

in the silence

of the falling snow.

Welcome to Ancient Skies!
