Possibility
Of immortality — it’s
There until it isn’t.

And today, two…


Welcome challenges
Open up warm hearts and minds
Softening to strength.

Powerful places
Out in the hemlock-strewn woods
Offering themselves.

Opening




Springtime’s tender shoots,
They used to frighten me in
Their fragility.

Old Mother Lode II




She’d no boundaries
Of thought, word or deed, so I
Must create my own.

Stay tuned…



Sometimes grief will come
With changes and with aging.
Peace and joy come, too.

What’s Hardest


What’s hardest for me
Usually is something new,
Always opens doors.

Two Today…

Yesterday Evening

Swallows’ joyful arcs
Golden breasts catch golden sun
Sinking in the west.

The Opposite of Twitter

I take a deep breath
And soften into presence.
Maybe then I speak.

Oh, The Places I’ll Go!



Opening my heart
Is the road I choose to take
Grounded, warm, and brave.

Old Mother Load [sic]




Circling the empty
Spot where I believed you were,
Waiting for your love.

Compassion

We all want kind eyes
Looking warmly into us
Gift this to yourself.
