Winter Winds…

Winter bellows through

the backyard with knuckles bared

gnarled and frosty.

Song of Pink Flowers…

The smooth, delicate

lines of the flower, sing pink

vibrations of bliss.

Breakfast for Woodland Creatures…

The crimson berry

hangs innocent and fruitful,

ready for harvest.

Sunflower…

Cheerful petals soak

up haloed morning sunlight

with golden honey.

Stairs of Courage…

Stairs creep tiptoeing

upward past tree lined fears to

find heavenly stars.

A Trip to the Coffee Shop…

Cinnamon swirled
air mingled with sugar dusted
cake pops, sprinkled pink.

Youthful eyes taste and
grasping fingers unwrap in
Christmas-like delight.

Deep hum drum, drumming
conversations, smell mellow
against youthful cheer.

This earthly backdrop
providing tarnished silver
wisdom-filled lattes.

Yet… wonder-filled joy
oversteps wisdom, asking
for tall “sky-high” chairs

Looking down upon
low voices, scented amber,
bliss eats a cake pop.

To Step forward…

Staying in silence…

Is the invisibility cloak that protects our pain from the judgement of others.

It shields us from the pained eyes,

Shocked faces,

And closed body language…

Of those in which we share our story.

But courage tells us to share our story anyway.

Because by sharing our pain,

We allow others to understand that they are not alone.

Mom and Dad Need a Break…

Gliding together

across the lake, to the nest.

Babies need a nap. 🙂
