Awe and Wonder

 

Awe and Wonder  (my digital composition)

I live my life in awe and wonder.
So much to question. So much to ponder.

When my heart soars and my mind lifts,
a higher awareness brings its gifts.
I love this body that I wear-
flesh and bones, eyes and hair-
fed by water and soil, by light and air.

I feel more deeply and I care
for all Life’s forms evolving here
between the poles of love and fear.

I sense the others deep in space,
wishing to see them face to face
or mind to body, however strange,
as fast or slow we all change
our ideas and our beliefs
that cause our troubles and our griefs.

I sense the others here on Earth
coming from different domains of birth
amidst the stars and distant places
with different cultures and different races.

I sense there’s so, so much more
than anything we’ve known before.

We are as children in our knowing,
yet reaping all that we are sowing.
The ‘Do No Harm’ that we ignore
becomes the harm that we deplore.

Yet, I sense a shift in sight-
a New World View so clear and bright
that dark powers just disappear
with all their structures built by fear.

Our Spirit awakens and shows us how
nothing and no one can stop it now.
We gather our courage and find new ways
to live our precious, wondrous days.

We live our lives in awe and wonder.
So much to question. So much to ponder.

Smells of the Seasons

(Spring)
smells of fresh Spring air
cucumbers and clean water
-memories of Earth…


(Summer)
wet woodland trail
smells of heated soil and moss
-look! the mushrooms there!


(Autumn)
Winter is coming!
watermelon smell in air
-hurry! let’s rush home!


(Winter)
now the snow smells burnt
wood and oil and gas exhaust
-snowflakes change their shape!

Seasons

(Summer)
sunny Summer heat
sleepy yawns float in still air
-honey bees pause to rest…


(Autumn)
Fall’s burst of raindrops
with tears stream down my face
-wind whispers farewell…


(Winter)
closing the curtains
at day’s end- snowstorm now weaves
Winter’s white death-shroud…


(Spring)
soft breeze stirs Spring air
-laughter greets new leaves reborn
to dance on boughs again…

Flights

Flights

Observing Flights

air filled with insects

swift swallows never collide

-small planes fly over

 

Flight Exhaustion

eyes search through windows

swallows circle- rise and dive

exhausted eyes close

 

Still Flight

frail body sits still

mind jumps on a swallow’s back

heart laughs- swift pure joy
