Laid Bare…

Overlong those years of pruning

Oh thoughtless gardener

Your heavy hands cut away

The best of me

Forsaking care

Leaving behind this thorny tree

Barely there….



Always With You….

I saw you today

Through butterfly eyes

I touched you softly

With a breeze

I spoke to you in birdsong

And in whispers through the trees

I fed the sun that warms you

Held the moon that lights your way

Sent my love to you in star light

With a butterfly kiss today….



Hooves thundered loud

..Cloven strikes upon tender ground..

Still, no purchase nor footing would be found

For with Iron Core

Strong and Pure

A Titan Held

Sound and Sure…..


Simple Joys…

Fallible are we

Of flesh and blood and bone

Impermanent is life

Unlike things made of stone

Desire fuels the goal

And want for more each day

While moments ebb and flow

With time and slip away…

So many fight the clock

Believing they can win

And simple joys in life

Have no chance to begin…


(re-visiting a thought today)

Stirring Resolve

She opened her eyes

at last

Blinking back the weight of foggy dreams

too long left drifting

between hope and yearning…

Empty hands stretched out in earnest desire

grasping for a solid way

to wield life into imaginings

that lay in quiet wanting…

 no longer content to be held at bay….
