Sunrise dreams

It’s such a gift, to awaken to the light,
 The daffodils, the dawn, 
The mountain in its gilded repose; 
To set aside, however briefly, 
The worries of the world and dream of peace.

Monday, March 27, 2023


Imagine if all humans 
Were as generous as nature, 
Pouring their gifts into the world 
Without reservation, trusting against all odds 
That something, some day, might bear fruit; 
Sparing no effort in hopes that might be true.

Misleading assumptions

Things aren’t always what they seem, 
And assumptions based 
 On what we think we know 
Can be heart-breakingly misleading. 
“See something? Say something!” 
Is the slogan of a state under siege: 
See something? Look more closely, 
And look with an open heart: 
What you learn from looking might surprise you.

Welcoming spring

As we welcome the first daffodils of spring, 
Our hearts begin to soar 
At the thought of warmer days, and sunshine…

Seeing through the shadows

Wherever there is light 
There will be shadows. 
Our mission is to see through 
Our shadows to the truth that lies beneath, 
However troubling or awkward it might be.

Fed by the light

Fed by the light that shines on us, 
May we in turn bless and protect, 
 And guide the world 
With the light that shines through us.

Rosy smiles of dawn

After days of clouds, the sky clears again,
 Parting to reveal the mountain 
That hovers in the distance, 
Wreathed today in rosy smiles of dawn, 
As if to welcome spring.
