Lifted to the Sky

20190719_151540

As I walk along the beach, sensing the rhythm of the waves,

the depth of the horizon,

and the brightness of the sun,

I allow peace

to free my being

until

I am lifted

to the sky…..

Butterflies Dance in the Forest

20170628_151344

Butterflies dance in the forest, discovering the leaves

while the buzzing from a honey bee flies over,

but it’s the deer that discovers me first,

expecting her to run,

I whisper blessings,

with her heart at peace again

she bends down to feed.

The Words I’ve Been Carrying

20180707_161124

I turn towards the light, spinning some words, singing a phrase

expecting the revelation, instead water falls on me

but I am cleansed mostly

fig leaves never hiding me

or the words I’ve been carrying for so long,

waiting to write. So I begin again….

We all have a story.
