The Early Morning Light

20160514_120002

In the early morning light, leaves speak of peace

and a gentle rain

while a bumble bee hovers

watching me, as if I was intruding.

A chipmunk darts, when a pair of wings opens

and hops from one tree limb to another, hopeful.

“Will you release your prayer?” the crow seems to say,

I realize in the early morning light, of the deep forest…..

it is time.

The Doves in the Morning Light

Light Streaming

When I see the doves in the morning light, I know there is still

some tenderness in this world, a gentle strength,

they encourage faithfulness, don’t they?

Yet I see their determination

to be vulnerable,

and to be

together.
