Story Tellers


Every heart has a story to tell, the courage

to be beautiful in spite of it all,

the building of wings to lift

not only us but to strengthen

each one…..

have you written down

your victories yet?

Peace is Our Strength


Waves roll with white tops cresting,

tossed by the wind

and as I stand on the shore

I realize the real battle

is within each of us

and peace is our strength,

so tangible.

She Accepted His Shield

Grey Sky

When she found him she discovered he really was a warrior,

so she was willing to accept his shield,

having fallen into the strength

of his arms,

and he always found his answers

in the oceans of her eyes.


they were more than just arrows flung

into the ambiguous,

learning that love is greater

than any strong tower

still clinging,

to the darkness.
