Poetry

Tanka


Rain has come down now

Sun has hidden it’s red glare

I sit rain drenched wet

And still feel the world’s despair

Meditating 🧘‍♀️ hope must rise .

Breaking Through


Make every day count

Break through gravity holding back

Each tomorrow shines

Sunrise


My new publication came out today and I celebrated with the sunrise.

Sunrise


A flight from dark night

A runner starts up across hope

Finishes anew …

Morning


I woke

A morning pulls me to go out of doors

And stand among the cosmos

To allow the lights to christen

Into promise, will I be witness?

God is listening,

The universe displays his breath.

Shhh, it says,

Pray.

Write


As a writer sees

A book in front of me

I pour into emptiness

Morning


Let me wash my face with the morning dew

Dress my soul with the songs of birds

Pick the dawn with the hopes anew

Walk among the crickets I’ve heard

And take with me a symphony

Given by the hooting owl

Live again another day

And dry my feet with Nature’s towel

Angels in My Garden


Angels hide in my garden

Saying a prayer for me

They are not there for the onlooker

They are only there to be

A comfort for the tender

A reminder of the quiet prayers

So when we forget to spend the time

A sweet symbol of moments shared.

Haiku


A purple sunshine

A morning delight shines

Between the moon and sun
