The Pines And Stones

Across the expanse of shore

The pines grew. Tall and small. Fragrant.

Swaying, gently in the breeze.

Her toes curled in the cool water.

The smooth stones shone in the early light.

Gleaming like more precious stones

as the water moved over them.

Ebbed and flowed. The waves rolled calmly in.

The soft hum of birds as they woke filled the air.

She was sure that heaven would be like this.

Calm and warm. Soothing. Sensual. Beautiful. Natural.

Smelling of pine trees and ocean breeze.

Rabbit For Breakfast

I traipes through the yard. Merrily enjoying the awakening world.

Startling you from your morn.

You scampered off. To a new place.

Sure enough I came back that way.

Scared you still. I must say. For a moment

I did not see your face. I felt you there.

Looked around. You ate as I watched.

Eyeing me so. Sorry little one. I really should go.

Leave you to your breakfast, and stop stumbling upon you.

New Beginnings All Around

Here for the offering. Here for the joy.

A new beginning. A brand new way to see the world. Enjoy!

Let it flow over you. Bring forth the light.

There is no judgement now. No bickering. No strife.

Only love. Compassion. Understanding. That is it.

Come on over to this beautiful world where God asks us to sit

with him. Take his hand. Offer up a prayer.

Ask for what you truly need. You’ll find your answer there.

Around Again

The trail circles back to itself,

no real destination in mind.

It ebbs and flows, over and under,

around the natural divine.

Cirlcling. Round again. I think I saw that tree.

Say hi again. We meet, my friend. As I keep circling

again. Round and round. Until it’s done. At least the view has changed.

The flowers bloomed. The grasses grew. The trees are taller, too.

I keep circling. Around again. Crossing the trickling stream.

Keeping up a steady pace. Stopping to look at things. Butterflies

and dandelions. Clouds and trees. 

Birds and spiders. Things that fly higher.

What are those insects there?

The path leads to all these things. Delightful to explore.
