Hope this Spring

20200324_140238

We do not have to travel far to discover

hope this spring,

to become alive again,

as the earth awakens

and each flower gently

opens their petals

with the encouragement

of the sun.

When We Do Find Our Way

20180524_183757

When we finally do find our way, we will be amazed

at how far we have come,

how much we have learned,

and the strength we had

to overcome.

Allow your strength

to return.

Turning the Pages

20170527_170924

As isolation, and a cold rain batter against our windows

threatening take to take our spring away,

threatening our joy

we know our victory

is not far away,

so redeeming the time

we pick up our paper and pen,

turning the pages,

finishing another chapter,

telling the story,

no one else can tell.

    

Have you written today?

In the Power of Green

20160709_140126In the power of green filling the leaves

a new strength, born again

a healing of our spirits,

an assurance

that no sickness is forever

that life runs deep

and strong within each

of our frames, even more

than the forest decorated

with oak and poplar trees.

It is spring, after all.

Hope and power, both together.

Birdsong Awakens

20180524_183756

Birdsong awakens the forest renewed, leaves surge

and I sense a new blood now

in my veins,

I pause

with my pen flashing,

the wordflow shifting

from the colder air.

I hold the moment

breathing phrases,

hopefully forming….

a poem

from my spirit.

Note: I know it is a little early for spring, but I’m in that mindset now.
