To Be Broken Open

 

To Breathe in the Morning Sunrise

 

To Be Broken Open

To breathe in the morning sunrise

to be broken open

by the music of its glow...

to dance

in the fire!

Ancestors

 

Ancestors

Ancestors

 

Rolling,

playing in the clouds,

ancestors letting me know,

they will always

be with me.

Calls of the Wild

Calls of the Wild

Calls of the Wild

 

Writing poems

like giving birth

is a messy process...

 

Surrendering

 

to the Calls

of the Wild.

Beyond the Sedge Grass

 

Beyond the Sedge Grass

 

Beyond the Sedge Grass

 

Beyond the sedge grass

beyond the clan

beyond the glaciers...

 

I am one

with all life.

The Rarest of Communions

The Rarest of Communions

The rarest treasure,

to step not part way,

but all the way

out of one's skin

into another's...

 

To know the heart beat of another,

when it is calm, in fright or love...

 

To breathe with the breath of another,

is the rarest

of communions.

An Archipelago of Bear Medicine

An Archipelago of Bear Medicine

Cubs rolling

on the sedge grass,

on each other,

on an old tire...

 

Elders resting in the bay...

 

Their strength

rooted in Mother Earth.

Claws whitening

with age.

Innocence & Pain

Innocence & Pain

 

From threshold

to threshold,

 

Innocence & pain

 

Always longing 

for the soul's light.

We Make Our Own Joy

 

We Make Our Own Joy

 

We Make Our Own Joy

 

Finding openings

through the tangle

of branches,

we make

our own joy.

Beauty Hidden

 

Beauty Hidden

 

Beauty Hidden

 

Each day lifts a veil,

to see in ancient ruins

beauty hidden.

The Sacred Trust Between Us

 

The Sacred Trust Between Us

 

The Sacred Trust Between Us

 

is a fortress of the heart.

Whether the sky is blue or grey,

You are my wings 

and I am Yours

Forever.
