Being Alive


a step , a footing,

A distance, each day we strive

By being alive …

Picking up the gauntlet’s throw

Taking on the archer’s bow .

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.

Oh the volumes I could write .


Today I celebrated life!

Twilight crest after

midnight storm gives way to verdant

grass, and hope appears …

a full moon light shines

just in sight, reflecting on

sleeping Queen Anne’s Lace

A silent morning

Reflection of just being

Feeling the before

1st Sunday of Advent


A wakeful glimpse

Into darkness that helps us

See past into the light

Autumn


autumnal Equinox gently arrives

warmth of the summer lost in the skies

Burnt orange and red are made of your dress

A sigh of relief now we will soon rest

From a summer of drought and too little rain

We will put it behind us; wait for seasons to change
