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.

Still Fire

Still Fire

 

On a fallen log

with a heart-shaped hole,

a father stands - in regal dignity.

His colors bold,

His fire still.

Hurricane Rose

Hurricane Rose

 

Hurricane of the heart

Surges of wind and water

Landfall unknown

 

Hurricane of the heart

Blew women apart

and blew us

together.

Pristine, baptismal feathers

primed

for a sacrament.

 

Fierce, prehistoric claw,

primed

for the truth.

The Dragonfly Fairy & The Great Mullein

We couldn't be more different

you and I, 

and yet we are soul friends.

You give me roots

and I give you wings.

Dove Time

Dove Time

Dove Time

To fly with your heart

toward the center of the earth,

is to hear the Native American Flute

give sound to breath…

is to know that without the burnt holes

there is no sound

and there is no peace.

The eye of the dove

burns a hole

in my heart.
