Morning flow -

It is cloudy now, but I did see the sun this morning.  It affected my morning flow, and in that, I may have exaggerated a slight bit how long it has been raining, but it feels like eons to me.   Enjoy this sacred day!


After Eons of Rain

I see the sun this morning
a soft, pale circle, tentative,
as though it, too, is surprised to see on through,
to touch the land directly
without the intervention
of clouds, hail, snow.

My cat eats some soft food
if I bring the bowl to him
and sit and watch.

I feel my attention
warm into a ball
I gather and toss.

The air is smooth,
the air, unglossed. 





In the time of all this rain,
the Pyrancantha and Pittosporum
grew so much
that all I see outside my window
are leaves and stems,
and the Redwood tree is there,
a strong parent for the yard.
I move my head trying to see
the mountain.
It stands,
aims sunlight at me like a mirror,
my gaze.



Open Dare

This morning, soft spring,
the palest daffodil,
the tulips dance,
still closed,
not knowing, yet,
of wings.   



the two legs of the Redwood stand
reaching higher and higher to a sky
that waits for the feathered touch
the roots are shallow
the redwood balances on ballerina toes
plies and turns to catch it’s neighbors grasp.
Twined, they rise.


Savor this special, uniquely caring day.  Feel the mirrors of love as they bound and rebound, circling us all in hugs.
