How does

the sun protect itself

from scorch

The ocean

not drown

The mist


without becoming lost

The rain


without breaking

Somewhere …
perhaps where the breeze ends
or where it begins
a field of wildflowers
rises through parched earth
to bask in the glory
of a sun
without a single cloud
scenting the wind
with colors
calling to those
who struggle
in a wilderness
to see beyond
to a place of transcendence
where gold seeps softly
into the horizon
that dreamers long to touch
and poets dream to know
Take me sweet wind, please
to where the wildflowers… grow

If I close my eyes

I can hear the rustle of leaves

birdsong  joyously welcoming the dawn

Feel light shimmer on stillness

of a barely perceptible current

knowing it is the symphony of my soul

Reflections of sky

always most calm

after the storm

Torrents of emotion released from the clutch of darkness

bring a dawn of understanding


paints possiblities

in her wonder

guides me through beauty

to know the world

as myself

To be me

I am…

music light dances to in a forest of trees

I am…

 a transient dream traveling on a cloud

I am…

the laughter of a child blown through a wand into a soap bubble.

I am…

the echo of loneliness in howling wind

I am…

the gentle movement of air created by butterfly’s wings

I am…

a smiley face drawn in breath on a window pane by a child

I am..

a Universe held within a dewdrop bending a blade of grass

I am…

sand clinging to your feet longing to travel to new destinations

I am…

flickering candlelight breathing stillness of collective prayer in church

I am…

the breath of mist taken in by a mountains sigh

I am…

a child’s wish floating atop  dandelion seeds on a whisper of expectation

I am…

the perfumed pause before the first drop of rain

I am…

breath held before a lovers first touch

I am…

fingerprints left on pages of your favorite book

I am…

sandstorm dancing to the rhythm of the ocean

I am…

ache held in the soul of lovers too distant to touch

I am…

salt stains left on your cheeks after a final goodbye

I am

 afternoon storms rolling their knowing

 illuminating clouds

with bolts of brilliance

 as torrential rains

  wash away pain of doubts
