A Sense of Wholeness

100_1487

In our heart of hearts, far beyond any wounded love,

rooted still deep within us

we already know the song,

the shape of melodies flowing,

and the peace, the quiet

that carries us into

a sense

of wholeness.

Fish Hawk Morning

20180930_123817

In the cool grey dawn, a wing dipped down,

testing the waters, slicing the autumn air

banking to the right

moving through the rain

with deadly precision

diving,

while rays of sunlight peek

through the clouds,

a fish captured

to feed her family.

In the Space Between

20170531_193842

In the space between light and darkness,

as the dawn begins breaking,

there are times we don’t feel the privilege of a new day,

and we still smell the smoke,

or taste the cinder ash

of our dying hearts,

may we always remember

may we hold onto that light

that promises a new day,

always.

      

Note: This is about overcoming sadness.

In the Summer Fog

100_5694

Ghosts shimmer in the shifting shadows

of the summer fog,

lamenting of losing their former glory

seeking to escape……

the absence of flesh or at least

to explain their plight

to a willing writer, walking

in the woods unafraid.

If you stand perfectly still……

they will sense

your heartbeat.
