I walk the path,
air moist, coccooned
in layers of voices

mist rising over the lake

thoughts drift
caught between the now
and what may be

unconditional

unconditional

welcoming, you’re there
whether I show up or not

enters wintered lungs

opening to
perfumed air

a glimpse at a time

settles lightly
on the surface, then
sinks, gathering

thoughts like a net,
reflecting them
back, clarified

be still

be still

in the space between breaths

in the thought before words

in the womb of beginnings

hold me there

threads

September 4, 2013

threads

a line in a poem

a break in the day

a face from the past

a moment to pray

fly away

August 30, 2013

carried away

follow the line

between day and night,

follow the dream

of rest,

follow the cries

of gray mourning doves,

pass through the

boundary, blessed

the story-teller

August 28, 2013

guardian

whispers

in the underbrush

rustle, unearthing

memories of

of storms

survived and offspring

flown
