We meet at sunset February 15 2015, 0 Comments

We meet at sunset and breathe in blessings from the day. 

We pause in gratitude and enjoy the spectacle of the wide open sky.

We run up to the roof when the light is right.

Our cloud studded sky the canvas,

corn silk yellow to amber, rose violet to indigo.

in a slow 360, reflections golden windows east, alpen glow dusts Rainier,

rooftops and branches silhouette the land,

while brush stokes of ivory gray and snow white on sky true impossible blue,

and finally the decisive crisp contrail pencil stroke fuzzes to water color

blending into night.

Water Worship September 17 2014, 0 Comments

I worship the healing properties of water — physically and emotionally — it always does the trick. Restoring life to the places in me that have died. Here's a poem for Water Wednesday.

- - - - - - - -



Sometimes total immersion 

is what is called for. 


Diving in 

the shock and awe of beautiful water 

sheds anxiety's slimy sweat.


Slicing through 

exertion fashions an equilibrium 

of water cool, 

air crisp, 

blood warm. 


Surrender, release, allow. 


Suddenly floating 

with each exhale.
