I Was Even Able to Whisper

20160514_120002

The darkness and coolness of the deep forest called to me today,

with streams and a river unending, my spirit went quiet,

listening to the bees and one stubborn woodpecker.

A tree stump became my chair as I was surrounded by the comfort of leaves….

I was even able to whisper,

a simple prayer.

A Walk in the Sun

20180428_171951

An amazing thing happened to me today.

As I was walking, the sun was shining,

the wind was blowing,

dandelions

were popping up everywhere

in the deep deep green,

and cherry blossums

appeared out of nowhere.

Then suddenly…..

a smile appeared

on my face!

Can you believe it?

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.
