Renewal

20180930_124304

When our spirits are lifted, restoring our wings,

our journeys will take us, beyond

distant shores.

A glorious renewal inspired

by all that is green.

Whispering Each Other’s Names

100_1051

She loved it when the wind gently lifted his feathers

she tucked her wing under his,

and felt so alive

they both ascended

whispering

each other’s names.

Wing Span

20180524_183757

Wing tip to wing tip our wings covering the ones we love,

shielding the vulnerable from the smoke and the ruins,

our shadows still riding the wind, as we refuse

to hide behind our white picket fences,

taking to the air we know better now.

It was never about protecting ourselves,

but the victory was always in the giving,

in the prospering

of all the people.

Expand, and take in.
