It has been quiet,

Without the sound of your voice,

Your guiding footsteps.

I have stopped searching,

In the wake of your absence,

Hoping you’ll guide me.

Something like moving,

The way that the wind blows me,

Hoping for your hand –

Walking with closed eyes,

I have opened my whole soul –

Show me the trail.

Just beyond the clouds,

I know you are both resting,

Waiting at the summit.

Life’s great mysteries,

Impossible to explain,

Are behind me now.

Fathers and brothers,

Warriors in the heavens,

Are blazing my trail.20170528_135331

Porcelain flowers,

Brushing gently against me,

Keep my promises.
