Focus

1857F2F9-F0C2-4106-9DDC-AD73B4D63123

In a world gone crazy with hate,
Divisiveness and exclusion
I will fight with laser like focus
Double my efforts to be tolerant,
Patient and compassionate
I will be the model of beauty and light

Tempest

All that builds must release
Tempest in a twisted sky
Change is a comin’

Earth Cries

Silent cries

Natural flow occluded 

Earth’s heart attack

Frozen

He sat there frozen
A painful reminder
Of days gone by
When mankind
Was allowed to read
And relax, and dream
A time before the ban
That constant reminder
Of the punishment
For being caught reading
Was to be turned to stone

Atmosphere

File Nov 17, 9 38 24 PM

In smoldering ash
Nothing left but a flicker
Of a life that was

 Before the earth’s atmosphere
Became the human experiment

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
