The Wings of Birds Soaring

20190719_151842(0)

Wordflow only holds onto the healing of poetry

as long as bitterness is cast away

spinning, descending

back to where it came from.

Our best work

lives with a heart running

like prayers on the wings

of birds soaring.

The Summer Lake

20180930_125113

In the heat of summer, the lake often calls to artists and dreamers

in the coolness of water,

and the explosion of green.

And sometimes…. even prayers

are sculpted,

given shape, given light,

flowing through our hearts and escaping.

When We Speak of Peace

20180930_130115When we speak of peace, we not only speak for ourselves but also for the interests of others,

for the idea of peace is filled with wholeness, a sense of healing, a sense of safety and being protected,

a sense of being accepted, of being loved, and even having bread for our physical bodies.

May we all have peace.

Amen.
