Morning Sky


Nestled between the tall green pines
shimmering lake of morning reflection
kayaks rest on the shoreline of adventure

Awakening, the first breath of sunrise
glorious hues of purple, pink and yellow

Did you ever see a spectacular sky
that made your soul cry

Expelling Darkness, Absorbing Light

Image: Brooke Shaden


I face the sun

in a field of wheat


expelling darkness

take these nightmares

filled with smoke, fire

and the stench of death

that plague this modern

world AWAY


absorbing  light, love

and hope for future

generations so that they

may sleep peacefully

in an  unmasked world

breathing in the

 goodness of life in a field

of wildflowers rooted

deep into the sacred

pulling at my heartstrings
falls leaves me singing
familiar tunes

The Fox, Feather and Dream

mysteries of the silver tongue
words inked in a nocturnal realm
quilled ballads, forever unsung
mysteries of the silver tongue
dreams hidden from the morning sun
dying limbs of broken wing elms

Do You Hear Me

I hear you've been eavesdropping

on me, but, have you been listening

to my words


do you count the

syllables of my thoughts


do you  hear me softly

whispering my intentions

 into the night


is the message of my

heart audible to  your
