Secrecy at night
Showing dark for light
Of day.
Hold me hoping tight.
Tilt me toward the right
Of way.
What I’m left of sight
Turn disturbing fright
To play.

To all those bad guys in my heart – Today I set you free. You’re all forgiven. Go away! Or stay – Make friends with me.

Rebirth and Remembrance

The morning Sun begins to rise
As dawn rebirths the light.
Those colors I remember well.
They leave the dark with night.

When I awake I sense surprise -
Another day to see,
Another chance to get it right
Or not if that should be.

Easter Morning


I can imagine the despair of the Israelites fleeing Egypt only to be trapped by the Red Sea. We forget that even what’s ordinary like fleeing from slavery or building a home is ultimately outside our abilities. Our efforts bring heartbreak. As we walk submission and obedience permit those seas to be parted.

The beauty of the impossible is that we cannot walk through walls of water on our own. We have to allow the love that is stronger than the universe to open the door.

The she-bird sang her secret reveries
While I, moon-blown, searched the ringéd-seas.
Deep waters drummed my heaven-circling pleas
Awash with water-spoken mysteries.

Linked to dVerse Poetics where Laura Bloomsbury hosts with the theme of compound words used by Dylan Thomas. I picked “moon-blown”, “she-bird”, “ringed-sea”, “heaven-circling” and “water-spoken”.


The Beauty of Spring

Enough already. Spring is here.
Forget cold winter blues.
Warm with joy to what comes near
And cherish what you choose.
