Rising

Cut yourself loose;

jump in..

 

die

to its embrace..

 

its hallowed

space..

 

rise

to the surface..

 

surprised

by

 

the audacity

 

of your

courage.

Life’s Terrain

A child

in life’s terrain;

I stumble

and fall..

 

blaming

no one..

 

darkness

cannot

bind me..

 

light

will

always

find

me.

Waves

Like

breaking waves..

 

aching

for time’s

release..

 

we reach for 

affinity’s

shore..

 

restored

by peace.

Changing

Endings

are beginnings..

 

beginnings

have endings..

 

what is over

falls away..

 

nothing

and no one

stays..

 

unchanged

Even As..

Even

as..

 

my mind

flits

and

turns;

racing

raging;

churning..

 

with

more

and more

 

of life..

 

love

is at my core.

Touch

We’re all wounded;

we all wound..

 

torn

or tearing..

 

born

with

the healing

touch

of love..

 

we

forget..

 

and let

each other

bleed.
