When Our Hearts Soared


With fragments of spring we remember the earth,

and when our hearts soared with the echo

of the divine still firmly in the sky.

We remember

and are strengthened

refusing, to let go.

Giving Flowers


In times of our deepest loss, tragic moments

never making sense

we don’t feel loved, do we? Perhaps

we offer our tears, our prayers

and some flowers,

as a source

of love

and strength.


Note: In addition to New York, our family is praying for some friends today, who lost their father, in a tragic accident.
