Simple Songs of Truth

Play for me! Strum on silvery strings! Old golden hymns of ancient Truth… Soul calming song, fly on Dove wings! Remind me of all eternity’s worth! Tell me of the miracle only Love brings!   Spirit’s joy, lifted by Heaven’s mirth! Saintly song across the ages still rings… Encircling all of history’s wide girth!

Winter’s Artist

The budding artist that never quite blossomed into fame is that eccentric old woman. I am her and she is me and the hardest part about being her is accepting her. Once active hands and mind used to create things of beauty now, often lie in rest or are consumed with self-care. However, that eternal … More Winter’s Artist

Benevolent Power

When the cotton flies on a summer day worries melt in the magic of rose bouquets presented by the Walking Stick Cactus. In the heat of sun and full life, time, age, and winter don’t matter. Swirling white cotton floating on the warm wind lifts my fanciful thoughts to go dancing in a summer-time blizzard. … More Benevolent Power

Vapors

Vapors rise to form clouds and dreams. Most take flight to drift on a pleasant breeze, Then dissipate unremembered. The few give of themselves to the nurturing of green hills; Causing flowers to bloom in bursting color! While others grow, gather, rumble, and flash!

What can be done about THEM? You know who I mean, those people over there who are so different from us and are messing up everything. If we can just control them somehow, or get rid of them, then things will be so much better. They don’t think right, dress right, or act right. Something … More THEM

Early Spring Wind

The spring wind roars over the ever-grey high desert that waits for just the right amount of warmth and moisture to bloom. By gale forces the desert floor is being swept clean to prepare for a new season of life. As long as there is snow on the mountain peaks there will be wind in … More Early Spring Wind

History

While winter still lingers, In the reminder of icy Rocky Mountain peaks, White memory fingers, Warm to melt with acceptance, in truth leaks, Flow, new life bringers; Yesterday nourishes today; is dead but speaks! Into eternity, it lingers!   Past hold; pain let go in transformative tweaks; Learn to value blunders; Less painful repetitions, useful … More History

Eternal Spring

I wonder if I will ever be too old to notice the first day of spring… The first glint of butterfly wing or the special song new birds sing. Carpets of purple verbena woven with soft grass for hungry deer, Wonder of long gently warm days; far removed from winter fear. This season that comes … More Eternal Spring
