The Wings of Birds Soaring

20190719_151842(0)

Wordflow only holds onto the healing of poetry

as long as bitterness is cast away

spinning, descending

back to where it came from.

Our best work

lives with a heart running strong

like prayers on the wings

of birds soaring.

Seeking Light

20171028_150812

In each temple garden, in each heart opened,

a choice is made

to either seek light and pursue it,

or to only hide in the shadows

with nothing to say.

Is your temple speaking?

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.
