In Our Night Songs

In our night songs we can move beyond our borders

our hearts overflow with quiet calm

we slip easily

into dreams of peace, and of wings

enfolding us.

By the Stream

20160418_121502

By the stream, a catbird calls for its mate either angry or in love, in the brush of leaves

and branches. And the blue jay bullies the sparrows, taking over their nest, while in the sky

a hawk loses the fight with a group blackbirds. Perhaps the hummingbird knows

best, by being too quick for any to really see him, and the sweetness

of flowers has always been less hostile

than stealing eggs.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”

Renewed

100_1289

He gives strength to the weary

and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the Lord

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40: 29-31
