Finding Beauty

Life is Beautiful
…so they say

I read the news and shake my head
beauty in life isn’t here

Then one day I stop to look
past the conflict - hate and crime

Today I see the hummingbird
fluttering at my window

I see the mother robin
caring for her young

The sky so picture perfect blue
with wisps of cotton candy clouds

People nod and smile at me
touching my soul this simple way


Life is Beautiful
…when we take the time to see.

Do We Write?

Do we write the stories?
Are they are own creations?
…or are the souls of the past finding us
    telling of their lives
It must be so…
I have no idea how I write these thoughts
Ancient souls are touching me
Embracing my mind
Continue to listen I must let their stories live

Emerging Day

Feeling the embrace of this morning blanket

the peace of being part of life in the silent busy dawn

wanting this feeling to live in me throughout the growing day
