Joy
 
Beyond
its current
container
Light
is free
at last




Small invisible words

 Small invisible words
Strewn through the air.
They flutter as leaves
And fall to the ground
in the nonsensical pattern
 of a poem.
  


Journey

From Light
to dark
to light
we travel
each pass

 


Eternity


            The music of the rocks
                        The silence of the mountains
                                    Their voices!
                                                They cry out
                                                            Eternity
 
 
 





 Serenity

Peony white studio
 
is peaceful and still
 
like a winter snow
 

  



The Dance of Life
 
 In the Dance of Life
I twirl
 foot prints
 of orange and yellow
 delicate touches
 under blue skies
 a moment for tea
 on the sandy road
 and back into
 the Dance
 of love and life
 we go.
 
 
 



The window pain
 
The window pain
twice the thickness of glass
 
Like a shield
even it can’t keep me
from the weather
and the pane.
  
 



The weather patterns
 
The weather patterns so strong
 They resonate.
 Absorbed?  No, not absorbed
But part of one
 Undeniable
 Forever
A shift in consciousness
 
  
 


 
Winter Rain
 
 Tonight
 to  night
 I could have
 A million cups of tea
 




 
A way revealed

Draw a line
 in the sands of time
 ….
 soon a () way
 the ocean will seal
 
 



For you
 
Love
softly
 from one dandelion,
 to another
 pollen blows . 
 
 




Resolute
 
If you believe
 In dragons or tea
 In sweat bread
 Or thee
 By this stove
 Simply be
 
 
 



How do we make bread?
 
We capture the warmth of the sun
The heat of our wood stoves
The notes of a song
Full of memories
 
In winter’s most precious light
We wait
 
Patiently
 For the dough to rise
In the poetry of a ray of sun seated here.
 




One step towards peace
 
Peace can be but a shadow
a mirrored reflection
 
something that eludes us
or can be clamped down
 
the find of life time
in the eyes of child





2011
 
There are places
that require silence
 
so that one might hear
the sun
gently melting snow.
 
There are places
that invite sound
so one might express
the scale ofthings
 
And there are places
unknown
yet to be found
a stillness all around.
 




Innocent Dreams
 
She came to him
With glee
As if
One and twoWere three.
 




LUNA
 
In a clumsy dance you pick yourself up
 
Flutter your wings
Meshing your motion to the breeze
 
Lacey ferns
Mirror your greens
 
Encouraged your wings find their momentum
 
At last
As if for a first flight you lift
Your weight
 
Of the ground
 
Thru the meandering spaces
Between light and darkness
Giant pines shelter your way
 
Your journey begins
 
In a rhythm all your own
 
You pass
 
Among tall pines
 
Translucent green
You glow
 
Beyond ethereal
Four wings in dew drops flow
Luna
You travel
The distance
From the path
 
Into the magic ofthe deep woods
 
My gaze follows
My heart skips a beat
Slowly I fill with a kind of beauty
Only the woods can keep.
 





 The Edelweiss sings
 
 Four Edelweisses
A little tiny rope
A miniature Ice pick
and  a silver sign reads
"Rhonegletscher"
 
Rohne Glacier
 
Breath through Time
 
One more beautiful than the other
Speckled faces in white furs
Turn towards the Sun
A momento saved for years
Past from one woman
to another, and another
and another
 
A little tinny memory
Held in Flowers, Rope and Pick
 [...]






Tenderness

As time turns
One by one
We go back
To the sand pile
