New Day…

Neighborhood rooster crowing
Looking for the Sun
 
Dogs barking in response
trying to scare away
the darkness…
the shadows…
of the night
 
Sneaking out for my
Early walk…
My communion with
the New Day
 
Yet…
 
Not caring that I
allow the screen door 
to do what screen
doors do best…
Make that unmistakable
twang as the spring
stretches open
 
And…
 
That comforting sound…
that slap…
of wood on wood as
the spring bounces back
into place and the door
slams shut…

Moonlight…

Each night
She walks in 
Moonlight…
Searching…
 
Yet…
 
Hiding in shadows
Looking for the
Perfect stars to 
Soothe her Soul…

Pain…

Pain again…
I deal with it 
almost daily…
Some are worse
than others
 
Muscles stiff and aching
Joints locked and sore
 
Movement is difficult
But…
Daily I put on a
Smile…
Move slow…
Careful…
Deliberate…
 
And…
 
Try not to give
in to the pain…

Morning Mystery

Crystal clear black sky
Stars high clear diamonds
hanging finger tip close
 
Walking in the crisp darkness
A stillness is broken by a
strange sound of rushing water
 
Yet…
 
Only an aural illusion…
The cold north wind moving
through the remaining tree
leaves gives the sound of
moving water…
a rushing stream…
that isn’t there
 
What a gift!
The morning undisturbed
but for this mystery of
Nature…

Thankful…

On this eve of
Thanksgiving
I have so much gratitude
 
Yet…
 
So much sadness
What many take
for granted I 
no longer have
 
Family…
 
Hold them close
Keep them in that 
special place in 
your heart
 
For…
 
You never know
when they will no 
longer be in your life

For Michael…

Shots fired
A young boy
Dead…
Needlessly
 
The decision given
NO…
Hearts broken
Souls rendered
Deep in pain
 
The crowd protests
Peacefully… 
Until…
provoked
 
Fires rage
Emotions are high
 
When will 
The HATE
END…

*NOTE: Regardless of how you feel about the decision regarding the shooting of Michael Brown, a young man died needlessly at the hands of someone sworn to protect and defend.  This is the tip of the iceberg nation wide … things must change.

Renewal

Day by day
I realize it no
longer matters
And…
I care less and less
as time goes by
 
Amazing…
When eyes are opened
How the heart releases
And…
What once was important
no longer matters
 
Each day…
I am personally
Stronger…
Happier…
Renewed…

Meditation

Crystal clear stars
hanging in a
Pre-dawn sky
 
Blanketing the deep
blue velvet background
Surrounding me…
Hugging me…
As I walk through them
 
My heart is lifted
And…
My soul is peaceful
 
This daily early
morning silence
is my new
Meditation…

Security…

Thunder rumbling in the distance
Sky dark and threatening
Storm brewing…
 
There are moments of clarity
Desire quickens…
Resting secure in the 
strength of your arms
 
The storm rages…
Builds…
And…
Finally passes…
 
Safe…
Security reigns
in your Arms…

Footprints

The empty silence of…
our lives…
our minds…
our souls…
 
Cause us to hold fast
to hope…
to the future…
 
to the possibilities
of change…
of something new…
of something positive…
 
Gazing down…
Looking from afar
I see footprints
leading to 
The Future…
