Baptismal Feathers

Baptismal Feathers

Baptismal Feathers

Pristine, baptismal feathers

primed

for a sacrament.

 

Fierce, prehistoric claw,

primed

for the truth.

The Dragonfly Fairy & The Great Mullein

We couldn't be more different

you and I, 

and yet we are soul friends.

You give me roots

and I give you wings.

Dove Time

Dove Time

Dove Time

To fly with your heart

toward the center of the earth,

is to hear the Native American Flute

give sound to breath…

is to know that without the burnt holes

there is no sound

and there is no peace.

The eye of the dove

burns a hole

in my heart.

How many times have I lifted my feet

off the ground into the unknown

to hurl purity at deceit & injustice?

shoulder the soul's knowing,

led by gentle
