Candlelight flight

25 Nov

While the light of this single candle
Shines
I watch the flight
Of hummingbirds –
Hovering – flitting – testing
Settling
For a moment
New energy
Sweeping away – zing!
They’re gone from view
Into the backdrop of dawn
Silhouette of mountains and sky

But the candle remains a beautiful light

Love to this day, what was, what is

New dawn

Flowers of time

Thankfulness for now

New time

22 Nov

With each new day we heal
Find the sun
Steadiness –
First for a breath
Then
A minute
Then two
An hour, a day..

Practicing for a lifetime
Renewal of life
Joy
Peace
Of now

Giving thanks for this time

The land, my home

17 Nov

Just a little piece of land
He said
And some rain
Oh, if we could only get a sprinkling
Of rain
To match the sunshine

Shower of Light
And Love
On the garden of the Heart
Depth of Being
Fine, strong roots to the Earth
Grounded
In the fields
Home
Now

For my Dad

15 Nov

He’s in the sky
And the birds and trees
All the gardens
All nature
In the clouds
Dancing
With Marjorie
Mom & Dad
Together again
Spacious

Floating in beauty
Love
All is well

We remain
And honor your glory

Giving thanks for all

Peace and ease
Music with great joy
Your song
Mine

Strength – courage – softness – kindness

All that is
Left to me
I know
Grateful
So very grateful
For you

Sunrise through the trees

14 Nov

I look to the east
Morning light shimmers
Gradual awakening
To my good day

When I can see the light coming thru
The silhouette of these trees
I know

Treasuring Simplicity

8 Nov

Gentle breeze, the feeling on my skin
Love and strength from friends and family – we are all one
Love for my mom
True connection sustaining
Blessing …
Offering thank you’s
Saying I Love You – out loud
All Love in Life
Beauty in accepting help
Loveliness in the offer of help, love and support
The sky
Trees
All in nature
Hummingbirds
Always
Seeing Beauty

Peace in being

Honoring Life

4 Nov

He said thank you to my brother
Said a prayer to bless his mother and father
Said I Love You to us over and over
Wanted me to have a nice dinner with him
Didn’t think he deserved such goodness
Remembered being so poor
And how they figured it out
To Thrive
To 89 in beauty and courage
Wanting the transition to be with Marjorie, all the people you love & who love you so much…they’ll help you to float
No fear
Just goodness
Light
Love

I can let you go there
With love
Glory
Kindness
As I hold fast to my own strength
Thank you for teaching me
Showing me
Infinity
