Time

Normal


I run because I am
I run because it is there
A healing ritual

The Dance


My feet clips into the cement

Drumming the rise of the sun

As the river’s fog dances with the tide.

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.

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.

Run


A run,

thoughts come

and go…

the steps not fast,

not slow…

I listen to crickets,

birds and such.

To rustle in the trees

sun’s warm touch…

I measure my distance,

from tree line to tree.

I measure my fatigue

and I talk to me.

I pray some, and sing

and listen some more.

My thoughts ramble

trains on the track…

I am soon done,

I am almost back.
