A Walk in the Sun

20180428_171951

An amazing thing happened to me today.

As I was walking, the sun was shining,

the wind was blowing,

dandelions

were popping up everywhere

in the deep deep green,

and cherry blossums

appeared out of nowhere.

Then suddenly…..

a smile appeared

on my face!

Can you believe it?

The Healing of Our World

20180930_130420

As the wind moves ripples across the lake,

I dream of days when peace lived,

so I focus

within my heart

on the healing of our world,

as the wind grows stronger

I enjoy the wildness,

of clouds shifting

and birdsong lifting.

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.

Solitude

20170628_135132

I may not get to the mountain top today,

or walk in the tall grass

but I can surround myself

with the woods, seeking light,

or walk by the lake,

pause on a rock watching

the ducks gently paddle,

as I close my eyes,

breathing deep.

Note: I like many of you, feel a need to have an inner quiet, a time to reassess and pull back.

I know I always work too hard, post too often. And everytime I say I’m taking a break, it doesn’t happen for long. It’s who I am I guess.

One way I have made time though, is by sharing from my archives. So I’ll do that for awhile, and post less often.

My priorities are to take care of my wife, and my own health.

I’ll also be spending even more time outside (yay!), learning more yoga, exercising, and reading.

I love reading paranormal spy thriller novels, and poetry. My favorite poets right now are Rupi Kaur and Courtney Peppernell.

Thank you for reading!
