Laughing like sunflowers


Laughing like sunflowers,
We lift our hearts to the light
And drink in the last golden rays of summer.

Final flamenco


The dahlia’s practical pointed petals,
touched by death’s demented fairies,
curl and turn to lace 
as she performs her final flamenco 
and fades to dust.

Spellbound


We watch in autumn, spellbound,
as the trees reach out with desperate fingers
for one last taste of light before they fall.

The sun will rise


However dark things may appear,
Always remember: the sun will rise again.

Be gentle with yourself


Fragile, delicate, ephemeral—
You are a precious flower:
Be gentle with yourself today.

The path to peace


Come, leave the busy cafe of thoughts behind
And stroll along the quiet path to peace.
Let your eyes and heart be fed by the scent
Of green and the song of silence.

Ready to serve


Look past the worn, the scarred, the torn,
The rusted and the mended
To the heart of service, the willingness,
The quiet competence and patience
As she awaits the chance to serve again.
