Tethered in the moment


What do you see? The battle scars?
The wounds, the bumps and bruises of a life well lived?
Or the simple dappled beauty of her lines;
the way her purpose seems to glow from within;
how, tethered in the moment, 
she's still so clearly built to sail before the wind?

Clear skies ahead


I sit, and thoughts gather
like clouds on the horizon.
Come, breezes of compassion, come,
and blow this self away.

From this perspective


What we see depends so much on where we stand.
If today you're seeing red,
perhaps it's time to take a few steps forward --
even if it means forging a new path...

Seek out the light


There is One Light that burns in each of us --
good or bad, rich or poor, powerless or mighty.
Seek out that light, in all you meet,
and find a way to encourage it to shine.

A safety net


As new growth begins to unfurl in us,
we watch, and see how what has gone before
informs our progress, and provides
a safety net, to catch us if we fall.

More like the water


Help me to become more like the water:
To absorb what falls into my life
Rather than break, fracture, or shatter.

Life's unfolding


Over the course of life's unfolding,
Hearts open like petals,
Eager to welcome the Light.
