Darkest night, the tempest rages
Violent winds upon the shore
Mighty Oak and Willow bracing
Morning light reveals the score
Staunchly stood the Oak resisting
Any change from status quo
Willow swayed and rode the current
Bowing to the greater force
Steadfast Oak sustained much damage
Branches snapped that would not bend
Willow’s tired leaves discarded
Healthy limbs, a place for growth
Change occurs, how will you answer?
Fight to keep your comfort zone?
Ride the thermals to new heights?
Break or bend, your life, your choice.
Infinite wisdom, time and space
Concepts man cannot embrace
Spirits and guides, to you implore
Follow, trust with them explore
Faith in the vastness sight unseen
Purpose, path, what does it mean?
Miracles happen every day
Inward turn, you’ll find your way.
I walk the beach, our favored spot
Searching for my love.
Pink puffs on blue, sun bursting through
Hopes are riding high
Be this the day I see his face
Finding his way back
To hearth and home, his family
Awaiting safe return?
I see a man. He’s coming near
Bursting is my heart
The gait is wrong, the build not his
Smashed to smithereens
The gulls are screaming, “Silly girl.
Spirits walk with God.
You look for him, but cannot see.
Open up your mind.”
“A special date, a butterfly,
Feathers, pennies find
A rainbow stretched across the sky
Messages of love.”
Holidays, depressed once more
Wallow in self-pity
Humankind is happier
Life for me a struggle
Ego taunts. “Poor me,” it cries.
Stifling heart and logic
Spirit softly whispers love
“Precious being, holy.”
Spirits linking infinite
Time and space forgotten
Ancestors, angelic aides
Blessings freely given
Look around for gifts abound
Sunlight, trees and flowers
Creatures made by God’s own hand
Each unique and custom
Lift your heart by giving thanks
Ego kicked to gutter
Share what’s yours with fellowman
Get, rejoice, contribute!
