Questions

Oceans 266

If I told You how I feel,

would You get angry?

I don’t want to be a seeker,

anymore,

I feel stupid sometimes,

looking for strength,

in the mountains, a river,

listening, understanding the song,

of the waves.

I need deeper roots,

stronger faith,

and more answers,

fewer questions,

more love,

living in the now,

instead of,

my head in the clouds.

As the waves began to sing,

He said, “My son,

keep trusting, keep writing,

keep reading the Book of Psalms,

just be who you are,

and who, you were meant to be.”

In Eternity

Oceans 1387

 

In eternity the colors are brighter,

than anything we can comprehend,

the lonely will be loved,

and the pain will be gone,

no more dying.

There will only be one judge,

instead of many,

to see how much we loved,

how much we helped,

other people.

Did we care?

or just preach our doctrine?

while people starved,

and waited,

for help that never came.

I love the mountains,

and my life here,

but people are what matter,

we were meant to be healing,

He said so,

go for the heartbeat,

with a hand,

of compassion.

I want to see the brightness,

of the colors,

with my brothers and sisters,

standing,

shoulder to shoulder,

thanking,

each other for the help,

we all needed,

caring,

about each other,

even though,

we were,

different colors.

Summer Breeze

Mountains and Rivers 318

I will never forget,

our first time in the woods,

was He speaking to us?

summer breeze,

gently whispering,

in His presence,

we were bold,

to declare our love,

sitting on the bench,

chipmunks playing,

a blue jay interrupting us,

loud objections,

but sworn to secrecy,

in our holy moment,

of holding hands,

quiet hearts,

the silence of healing,

flooding with love,

as the summer breeze,

was gently whispering.

Blue and Green

Oceans 184

My favorite colors are blue,

and green, the sea can be green,

the sky and ocean,

different shades of blue,

always reminding me,

of who I am, and where,

I belong.

A green meadow,

covered by the blue,

in the shadow of the mountains,

will always be my favorite place,

will always remind me,

of You,

and where I belong,

here on earth,

living in the green,

covered by the blue.

 

 

 

 

Peace and blessings to everyone.

In the Valley

Mountains and Rivers 163

Shadows of giants, used to dwell here,

in the valley,

holding back the light,

ready, with long spears,

daggers,

dipped, with poison,

rejoicing in the gray, lurking.

But I told them,

this is my valley,

not yours, get out,

my soul will prosper.

I do not live in the mountains,

but the mountains live in me,

and I will be strengthened,

by the One,

who created me.

 

 

 

 

Peace to everyone.

The Waterfall

Mountains and Rivers 394

Where is my waterfall?

my soul made of sand,

searches,

with cactus bleeding.

Is there no relief?

no refreshing for me?

are You hiding,

behind the veil?

Your light is barely seen,

in the early morning, summer fog.

Do You hear me when I call out?

Then He said,

My son,

You have always had a waterfall,

you just didn’t believe it,

stretch out your hands,

and be refreshed.

Be at peace now.

Peace to everyone.

Looking Beyond the Power

Oceans 270

Looking beyond the power,

we can get a glimpse….

For the young, waves,

are meant to be conquered,

body surfing,

go underneath!

holding their breath,

the wave passing over.

On a distant beach,

young lovers, discover each other,

as waves bring,

the rythym of the earth, stars,

dropping kisses.

To parents waves are dangerous,

holding the baby’s hand,

for dear life,

ankles barely touching,

cherishing her safety.

How do waves become,

something more, when we get older?

When we look beyond the power,

we can get a glimpse,

of eternity.

Four Feet One Heart

Maine and More 132

Four feet walking the path,

one heart beating.

Did you ever think we would be here?

walking to the light,

the earth caressing our souls,

as if there was no tomorrow,

speaking,

of His love.

There is eternity in the waves,

listen,

you can hear the angels,

and the rhythm of certainty.

Take my hand, shhh,

we’re not leaving yet,

this is just a foretaste,

as your lips meet mine,

our prayers held safe,

with four feet,

firmly planted,

one heart beating.

August 6, 1965

Old Photos 040

The actor was teaching us,

about Britain and the colonies,

I can’t help thinking though,

there were no rights,

for some people.

And yet they were here, a part of us,

the first people,

being pushed west, dying,

and Africans being bought and sold,

in the market place,

God have mercy.

It wasn’t until August 6, 1965,

that African Americans could vote,

imagine, 1965.

Dr. King.

And by the way,

Britain abolished slavery,

long before we did.

God have mercy on us.

The View

Mountains and Rivers 228

As we stand here together,

like two angels searching,

into the endless, we have no words,

but there is the thrill of purity,

we cannot see prejudice from here,

hatred is hidden,

our hearts sing silently,

wondering,

if the world will ever improve,

will good win in the end?

Then we breathe the mountain,

see further into the horizon,

and we realize together,

as I take your hand,

we know Who wins,

your eyes pondering my smile,

everything will be made right again,

we hope.

As I put my arm around you,

we lift up a silent prayer.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”
