Stillness at Lonesome Lake

20170528_120425

It has been quiet,

Without the sound of your voice,

Your guiding footsteps.

20170528_120628

I have stopped searching,

In the wake of your absence,

Hoping you’ll guide me.

20170528_125115

Something like moving,

The way that the wind blows me,

Hoping for your hand –

20170528_130156

Walking with closed eyes,

I have opened my whole soul –

Show me the trail.

20170528_130301

Just beyond the clouds,

I know you are both resting,

Waiting at the summit.

20170528_130405

Life’s great mysteries,

Impossible to explain,

Are behind me now.

20170528_132208

Fathers and brothers,

Warriors in the heavens,

Are blazing my trail.20170528_135331

Porcelain flowers,

Brushing gently against me,

Keep my promises.

Renewal on Red Hill

20170527_132337

Fresh blueberry brush,

And delicate flowers,

Born in the soft spring…

20170527_132358

Welcoming blue skies,

Wanting us to know, boldly,

Of tomorrow’s hopes.

20170527_132748

Yesterday’s sorrows,

Rolling in heavens away,

Diminish on high.

20170527_133014

The world is still safe.

Fresh, open and beautiful.

The sun will still shine.

20170527_133519

Delicate flowers,

Shaking with Spring’s purity,

Unfold to the world.

20170527_135247

When once we had thought,

We were buried in the frost;

Only in passing –

20170527_135619

The flowers – the bridge –

The marker on the trail,

Toward peace of mind.

20170527_135749

I want to reach out,

Letting go as unfurled bark,

Kissing the Spring wind.

20170527_135830

Life is everywhere,

Birches flush with rich green leaves,

Branches bursting forth –

20170527_141440

Life clings to tree trunks,

Huddling against the odds,

Brilliantly stable.

20170527_141643

Small signs will show you,

When you least expect them to,

Paths to Happiness.

20170527_141959

Holding out my hand,

Widely in the forest air,

Waiting for a friend –

20170527_142342

Rivers come and go;

Late May rain is letting up,

I hear sweet stillness.

 

20170527_142722

My Spring heart rushes,

Tumbling forward to you,

My sweetest of friends –

z20170527_132437

I know I’m ready,

For soothing summer sunbeams,

Laughter and warm smiles.
