Good Morning!! Morning Flow!!


Last night, I got into bed and experienced incredible pain in the bottom of my left toe.  I could not sleep and felt very sick.  This morning I woke tired, aware of how debilitating pain can be.  Here is my poem of the morning.  I also saw, once again, that when I push, even a little, I seem to pay for it in some way the next day.  I am building some reserve, and still, I am not where I was a year ago.   And yet, I am grateful that each day I am a little stronger, a little more able to dance and play.   Each day is a little longer for me.    I am grateful for the lengthening days, and new strength that grows and flows, within and without. 


Dragonfly Light


Back to sleep this morning

like a flower not ready to wake,

needing more sun,

more rain and space to fill out petals

with the coursing strength

of wings -



When Fatigue Slows My Entry to Day


I gather sticks of birch

and form a whisk,

beat eggs into a froth

rising, like light,

to meet the day,

circling a path of energy

in which to wake

and bake

the mixing of sugar,

flour, and butter,

in cookies round,

as leis.
