Silent and Still

I need

to be silent

and still;

fill my mind

with kindness..

 

reaching out

I touch all souls

 

with mine..

 

it’s my rhyme

and reason;

a neon sign..

 

on the path

to  peace.

Home Within

A refuge..

 

where tensions dissolve

truth is spoken

and conflict

resolves..

 

where wounds heal

harmony returns

and the soul

reveals..

 

hearth and heart are akin..

 

I’m home

within.

Messengers

The sharpest blow

informs us;

the deepest cut transforms..

 

will you embrace

the bitter-sweet gift

though it tears your dream apart..

 

for the destiny of the messenger

brings a message

to the heart.

A Pebble

So here I am..

 

my ragged edges

made smooth; softened

by life’s jagged touch

 

like a pebble plunged

through the rocky flow..

 

knowing nothing

for sure

 

though the water

is pure.

Feathers

We love and lose

we weather storms

together

alone..

 

like feathers

in a rolling wind

we’re blown..

 

through

the unknown.

Younger

And in the end

she took to flight;

a dark night

of the soul

behind

her..

 

the best

and worst..

 

a story

told..

 

bolder

older..

 

younger.
