Strength that Will Endure

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure, as long as life lasts.”

When Our Poetry is a River

100_1051

When our poetry is a river, our spirits will walk

with confidence, gathering hawks

on our shoulders, while dismantling

our fear, when it tries to scream

“flee like a bird to your mountain.”

Words have always 

given us

strength.

Giving Flowers

20171001_150036

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.
