As Dawn Speaks

As dawn speaks to the broken heart

so autumn speaks

to the heart

in love.

In These Mountains

20190507_133719

On a tough day, or when I need recovering, you can find me,

or I can find myself again

in these mountains.

You see they have a way,

a miraculous way

of removing bitterness

and fatigue.

Earth Day 2019

20160514_175724

And the sins of the fathers are being visited on us their children,

while the Earth continues to be ripped and torn,

I can’t help but think of the people lost,

swept away by storms,

from the changes in our air,

as dark clouds still gather

while ignorant bullies hide

their head in the sand,

lacking even a speck

of empathy.

How many more people

will be lost?

Spirit Free, Body Mending

20170531_193842.jpg

As the day breaks, we awake with our spirits free,

untangling from our dreams.

Our body still mending – as we stretch,

and we realize there is still poetry

waiting for us, regardless

of our aches and pains.

   

As you know I love writing poetry, but as I grow older I am dealing with chronic pain now. So I will continue writing, and posting, but my presence here will be reduced.

I will be focusing more on exercise, Asian medicine (sometimes called alternative medicine) and pain management.

Thank you to everyone for reading my poetry!!

I wish everyone peace!
