I Had a Dream

I had a dream, but
like many dreams do, it turned
into a nightmare

before I awoke.
I thank the gods I awoke,
Awakening still.

Journeys to Nowhere

The sky was dark and the rain pelted the windshield.
The crackling sound was punctuated by the whoosh whoosh whoosh of the wiper blades.

Journeys to nowhere
and the interminable
winter storms. Attend

to the road, for you never know where it will end
and sometimes the potholes are deep.

Be safe, child.
There are detours ahead.

Walking in the Darkness

You are surrounded by love and everything that shines like the sun.
The stillness is beautiful and shines.
Let go and open your eyes;
you will float softly to the ground and the landing will be gentle.
See.
The darkness is holy and that is a divine gift.

This will be the year of our blossoming,
begin.

Are you a fish out of water? The waves will cover you and carry you home.

The door to your heart sparkles like jewels.
What lies beyond;
the awakening.
This is a journey.
Enter beauty
for you are beautiful.

I Drink the Bitter Juice (Found Word Poem)

The year end pounding in my head,
I drink the bitter juice and watch the sun warm the bare branches.
The wind blows gently but cold envelops.

Compassion.
You don't see through the sweetness.
Comfort it is not.

Holy disruptions and shadows deepen.
Receive, soft friend.

Ponder a Winter Day (Found Word Poem)

doing home and warm,
sunlight filters in,
simple sweetness,
compassion stands against despair.

making both a shelter,
but great are clear things.
the answer is now.
circling the city, for change.

Never forget the children.
Ponder a winter day.
Consider the way forward.
Ritual bliss.

Believe (Found Word Haiku)

Believe the world they
shelter in, longest night and
shadows deepen, hope.

Believe (Found Word Poem)

Everybody believes in something.
I believe in love,
small good things,
soft friends,
the giving and receiving of breath and air.

how loved her
                        and were here.
better tiny hold here.

love is stronger.
finally, rest.

The Sun Sparkles Gold (Found Word Poem)

The sun sparkles gold on the brown leaves
and the finch voraciously eats her seed.
See through small things
help is on her way.
In the avalanche of post-Christmas paper
and sugar crash,
hold need and shelter;
better than salve
is home,
fire of love.
Who and why will clarify.
Nothing is alright besides good.
