A Lone Surfer

Still cool white sand stuck between my long salty toes,A tiny swell moved close wetting my dragging jeans,My nose took in through its filtering, yearning hairs,The formidable smell of fish and salt and long lost cares. Leaving my summer clothes on the beach I ran forward,Feeling the sense of freedom the cool water brought,Still strong […]

Her Hands Remembered

Wafer-thin like parchment paper was her aged and petite hands, In utter awe, I watched them fashion such a dance with magic. Smooth was the full, ample wooden bowl from a long history, Of the artful formation of her famously yummy buttermilk biscuits. Fingers old and steady, so familiar with each curve as she readies […]

Open Your Gate To Love

Rise like the winged seeds of the maple, to the sky like the feathery spines of the cottonwood and the plume-like seeds of the swan plant, to sow new love, and memories of those that have hurt you. Forgive those whose injustice tore your heart, Giving way towards peaceful places to walk, Fresh found beauty […]

Lush no more it’s trees or meadows in the low land, Our Father now saw the inferno growing swiftly […]

Taken Down A Notch or Two

A couple of days ago I was taken down a notch or two. It was a blessing for me. I can’t spare too many inches as I am already only five foot two. However, I find myself a bit shorter today. I realized that I had judged someone a bit harshly who I felt had […]

Always God’s Child

I pray that when I’m out and about, that you will see, God’s wonderful Love and mercy shine through me. Although I am a sinful creature and I can surely stray, It’s through his loving grace that I am blessed this day. Without any condition, my exalted Lord does so love, All his children who […]

Unconditional Love

Alas, my mind no longer lingers on journeying in hazy reverse, Until I can reach a purer, and unconfining version of myself. To explore the path of reality, tolerance must be softly born, As we embrace entirely, each moment in our space and time. Sorrowful beginnings must not render us unable to grasp joy. So, […]
