Some People

Some people
come in and out
of our lives
with fleeting surprise.

Others have a gift
for resting
deep inside of you,
a lasting uplift.

Unbreakable

What if I were to say
that you are amazing
just as you are.
The seasons cannot alter
your unquenchable beauty
not can time wither
the grace you possess.
I bow down to you
with hope and humility.
On this journey
we are blessed to tread
your presence is a torch
a gift of goodness
with you I am wed.

Haiku

Spring awaits
a promise of light
bubbling in the dark.

Whenever

Whenever life feels too much
whenever days drag you down
whenever you sense time
slipping by
whenever your thoughts start to race
whenever you’re stuck in a mindless loop
step outside of yourself
step into the light
drink from the well of nature
dip your toes in the soil of peace
absorb the smells of living
your mind is not your master
this day is no disaster.

Haiku

Cold mornings
blue is the calming beat –
happiness beckons

Haiku

From every darkness
a brightness emerges –
flow with it.

Remember

Remember the ones you love
Remember the ones who danced
Remember the ones who guided you
Remember the kindness of eyes.
Remember the smiling surprise
Remember the music of words
Remember the laughter, the tears
Remember the glow of connection.
Remember the purity of self
Remember the salt of the ocean
Remember the pulse of the hill
Remember the taste of devotion.
Remember the touch and the gift
Remember the attention that heals
Remember the love that transcends all
Remember the beauty in living.
Remember the nourishment of hope
Remember the breath of desire
Remember the flame of forgiveness
Remember the kissings entwined.
