Birdsong Travels


In waves of cloudflow, birdsong travels

to a future time, sending notes

and prayers

to our coming spring.

And Earth begins her warming.

The Wind Coming Down from the Mountains


As the winter storm roared through the trees, thunder rumbled rolling

through the valley, having been sent down the side of the mountain,

and I realized our spirits are so fragile, we often sense

the loneliness of the wind, with snowflakes swirling,

and yet inside our cocoons, we acknowledge the safety

and that God was never angry, even though

He probably does live in the wind

coming down

from the mountains.
