run by whispering secrets

Their feet kiss the grass.

Mosaic Mandalas

Deeply felt Mosaic Mandalas expressing what it's like to live inside the skin, the heart and the breath of the bully, the target and the witness-hero in the Transforming the Bullying Cycle Through the Expressive Arts Workshop at the 2019 International Expressive Arts Therapy Association Conference in Berkeley, CA.

Peace

 

Peace

Peace

 

Sometimes we're given

callings 

beyond our reach

and yet we reach

with every prayer

of our being

The Hawk

 

The Hawk

The Hawk

 

No matter how closely

I look,

there will always be

something forgotten.

Something I didn't see,

something too big

too small

 too close

or something,

which didn't wish

to be seen.

Wingspan

 

Wingspan

 

Wingspan

 

Sometimes our wings spread

farther than we imagine

and our hearts follow.

Essence

Essence

Essence

If the tightness

in my heart could speak,

it would unleash reels

and reels of a great love

rising up

in swirls of smoke...

 

Many see the light of a candle,

but as the candle burns out...

who sees the essence?

Christmas Lights

 

Christmas Lights

 

Christmas Lights

 

Beethoven's Complete Symphonies

play on my iPhone...

I keep the Christmas lights on all night...

a red, votive candle lit

for all those in need of prayer.

The Crown

 

 

The Crown

 

The Crown

 

The center of my being,

drawn by the sun,

reaches through the crown

for what is noble in all.
