Your inner artist

What is your inner artist looking at today,
and how will it interpret what it sees?
Whatever you create will inevitably reflect
your own projections...

What lifts you?

What is calling you that you're not hearing?
What are the things you've always known,
and what have you learned that only pain could teach you?
Who are you, and what lifts you above the waves?

Rarely black and white

In nature things are rarely black and white:
it's we who choose to see them that way,
hoping to eliminate distracting contradictions
and clarify the path we're so determined to follow.

A prayer for Spring breezes

Come, warm breath of Spring, 
and bless our yards with flowers...

The shape of our grief

What shape our lives will take after a loss
may well define us: whether we bend and slump
or lift it to the light and let our growth be fed 
by what we've learned and how we've loved...

When bridges fail

What happens, when we can no longer trust our bridges --
or is it just we've forgotten how to build them,
how to reach across political divides, to span the distance
from me to you, from us to them, from isolation into hope?

Puzzling out the whole

Like puzzle pieces, loops and whorls,
it all fits together: sea and sand, rocks and clouds,
the mountains and the valleys all combine to remind us
that we are all a part of a single whole.
