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

IMG_1642soaking 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.


New Life

Cold falls down onto

stiffening solid snow protecting

soft fragile ground.

Seeds dream,

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.

To Be…

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

to you

to me

to be…
