Time

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.

No one but sky and water .

Social distancing

Run
