As the Waves Roar

100_0890

After the war, with our minds at rest decompressing

from the shadows of fear,

our oceans will find us again

with the poetry we thought we had lost forever

running, thundering

in our ears,

as the waves roar

in the power

of confidence.

In the Poet’s Heart

100_1652

In the poet’s heart we hold the light dancing with colors

filling our phrases shaping,

guiding, directing the surge of words

through us

the intensity into our pens,

confident.

And in our decreasing

we seek a river

or an ocean

dolphins playing in the waves

to fill us

once again.

Lifting Our Hearts

20190719_151541

Oceans will hold, and keep our prayers

as we walk along the shoreline

breathing in the peace

of rolling waves

within the rhythm 

more confident we are one,

or at least

more complete now,

and even in our weakest moments,

fully aware of who we are,

and that yes, we are able now

to trust the Divine

we walk taller……

knowing we are loved,

we lift our hearts

to the sky….
