Peace

 

Peace

Peace

 

Sometimes we're given

callings 

beyond our reach

and yet we reach

with every prayer

of our being

The Hawk

 

The Hawk

The Hawk

 

No matter how closely

I look,

there will always be

something forgotten.

Something I didn't see,

something too big

too small

 too close

or something,

which didn't wish

to be seen.

Wingspan

 

Wingspan

 

Wingspan

 

Sometimes our wings spread

farther than we imagine

and our hearts follow.

Essence

Essence

Essence

If the tightness

in my heart could speak,

it would unleash reels

and reels of a great love

rising up

in swirls of smoke...

 

Many see the light of a candle,

but as the candle burns out...

who sees the essence?

Christmas Lights

 

Christmas Lights

 

Christmas Lights

 

Beethoven's Complete Symphonies

play on my iPhone...

I keep the Christmas lights on all night...

a red, votive candle lit

for all those in need of prayer.

The Crown

 

 

The Crown

 

The Crown

 

The center of my being,

drawn by the sun,

reaches through the crown

for what is noble in all.

Still Fire

Still Fire

 

Still Fire

 

On a fallen log

with a heart-shaped hole,

a father stands - in regal dignity.

His colors bold,

His fire still.

Hurricane Rose

Hurricane Rose

 

Hurricane of the heart

Surges of wind and water

Landfall unknown

 

Hurricane of the heart

Blew women apart

and blew us

together.
