Ebony etchings tell
lessons of life, death, rebirth
of earth, mind, body, and soul
… and I’m reminded of our spiraling interconnectedness.
Golden God Light
illuminates memories of Ancient Ones
tucked away in the hills of this strange land
… and now I’m transported to another world, another life.
Awe-inspired youths listen
soaking in the wisdom of The Teachers
yearning for understanding, seeking affirmation
…and I’m one of them, now and forever.
Infinite worlds collide
Creating past, present, future, and always
Until I finally understand why I’m here,
… And I’m free to be who I was always meant to be.
Cold falls down onto
stiffening solid snow protecting
soft fragile ground.
waiting for sun to come
but not too soon.
They need time and
space and the songs of birds to
lull them from their snow-sleep.
Ice carves room to
reach the resting pods filled with
Melted by underground springs
cold water nourishes rather than freezes,
baptizing new life.
My love extends beyond my soul
and through the smiles
I see in the children laughing around me.
My heart is more than my love,
radiating in in the eyes of my
Lover nestled beside me.
My life is more than moments
of joy and sorrow and sharing
Hope for a better tomorrow.
My journey is still being formed
all maps tossed aside,
replaced by unseen forces guiding me home
