Harvey

2017-06-14 18.23.05-4

My heart goes out to my Gulf Coast neighbors. I want to say that the storm will pass and there are rainbows ahead but right now that seems trite and doesn’t bring solace. The impact of these devastating disasters lasts for years. In the current climate of divisiveness and anger, it gives me hope to see folks coming together and showing the best of humanity under such horrible circumstances.

For anyone who wants to help, here is a link to the Hurricane Harvey Facebook page with options for donation.

Rusty
Spiral
Curling outward
Metal against glass
Throwback to a bygone era
When car windows were rolled down by hand
To better smell the wildflowers on a warm summer night lit with fireflies

Love

img_5181

A time of turmoil
Humanity on the rocks
All compassion gone

Heart hardened like stone
From pain, fear, disappointment
My internal shell

Then this loving face
Acts as the water or wind
I break down and cry

I needed this light
In a time when peace alludes
Love among the hate

Tears

Tears flow down my cheeks
Long after the rain has stopped
Puddle at my feet

Your soothing palm on my back
I am no longer alone

First Frost

Cotton boll snow storm
Frosts southern field and furrow
Shimmering solstice

Song of ancestors sorrow
Blowing on the wind of change
