Where Light Lives

20170915_165528

Our hearts opening in the sunlight,

sacred doors,

gateways of the inner world,

unseen

where light lives,

where our spirits run free

and colors shape shift

our creativity.

As the Wind Moves Over the Hawk’s Shoulder

20170628_132524

A solitary feather is lifted as the wind moves over the hawk’s shoulder.

Chipmunks are breathless as the mountains bask in the sunlight.

Yet the hawk turns his head, to listen to a murmuring sound close by.

A lone figure praying in the shadows, near the top of the mountain.

Peace is seldom easy, so the hawk kept silent, honoring his descendants, he turned away. 

Weren’t humans descended from birds of prey?

Available Thunder

Lacking the available thunder, we remain hopeful

surveying the evidence increasing,

we make our case,

giving our voice

to the truth.

(Regarding the Impeachment Trial)

One thing is for certain, and that is that one day the Grandchildren and the Great Grandchildren of some of today’s Republican Senators will ask,

“Why Grandpappy……why…..did you lie during the Impeachment Trial? “Why did you protect such a terrible leader….one who was only concerned about himself??

Why Grandpappy? There will be no good answer, only silence….there will be no excuse…..

What a terrible thing to do. What a horrible way to live.
