Lifted to the Sky

20190719_151540

As I walk along the beach, sensing the rhythm of the waves,

the depth of the horizon,

and the brightness of the sun,

I allow peace

to free my being

until

I am lifted

to the sky…..

The Hawk Ascends

20170628_172226

A perfect union of earth and sky, drawing me in,

calling forth who I once was

before the ruins descended.

I take a knee,

remembering

letting go now of the prayer

I’ve been carrying

for so long, eyes closed

my back lurches and my wings extend,

unfolding

as my spirit reaches

into the clouds.

Note: Is he human or is he hawk? It’s hard to tell sometimes.

Walking with the Sacred

100_1487

Oceans will hold our prayers, as we walk along the shore

breathing in the peace of rolling waves, washing us.

And forests will hold us, safely

in our weakest moments,

until we have reached the top

of the mountain,

fully aware

and confident,

having walked

with the sacred,

that yes, we can trust,

the Divine

with our future,

as we lift

our hearts to the sky.
