Mother Nature’s Balm

Sometimes when the soul

is hit with too many

things at once

it dives into distress

frozen, unable to focus

the stirring inside

disrupts the flow of peace

can’t find the words to pray

tears will not release

it is then the only source of 

comfort can be found

in the healing balm of 

Mother Nature

Courage To Fly

A stirring in the soul

foreboding…fear

will not remain silent

only choice

be still…listen

embrace

then, only then

will its voice be set free 

into the wild

that the soul

may once again 

soar upon

the wings of eagles

A Moments Choice

A cloudy mind

an aching heart

yet beneath it all

lies the Light

patiently waiting

for the request to 

cast it all away

the choice to act takes

but a moment to 

end the misery…

a compassionate act

towards oneself

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

Broken pieces

each a story

of its own

shaped by its 

survival

lovingly sculpted

by the 

Healing Hand

into a unique

majestic beauty

only seen by the

eyes of the soul

for true, eternal

Beauty

is found only in

the broken, the flawed,

in the ugly 

that the human eye

cannot capture!

Light Of The Holy Hearth

Sunrise of the soul

will Light the darkest of

Winter days

melt a heart 

frozen

in bitter pain

angry and afraid

it will fill the 

emptiest loneliness

comfort a body’s

weariness

bring peace to

malevolence

heal a broken

spirit…

So then let us

shine

the Sunrise of our souls

one day at a time,

one moment at a time

to permanently extinguish

and bring serenity to

this world’s pandemic wildfire

Beyond The Masks

Glorious sunrise, Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park, Utah

beyond the masks

there lies Hope’s horizon

let us stand strong

to love beyond ourselves in

respect for humanity

all God’s precious creations

valued lives deserving love

and protection from Covid-19

~ * ~

Please be patient and steadfast in the wearing of masks!

Blossoms unfold

their glorious beauty

creating a domino effect

of joy upon hearts

the view is clear

waters are gentle, calm

absent is fear

the Sun shines healing

ease of breathing

heart beats in rhythm

upward is Soul’s gaze

leaving behind

the world’s craze
