Fragile, Handle with Care

Waking up in a sweat Her heart racing, the pulsing of blood running though her veins She hears a train in her head Taking in her surroundings she assesses She is in a safe place, no reason to fear Barefoot she walks to the window and climbs out on the ledge Breathing deeply she watches the birds busy at work The sun is rising … Read More Fragile, Handle with Care

Reign Over Fear

My eyes fly open I hear thunder rumbling The curtains are blowing wildly in I slip out the back door and I see People are running Some are bent over gasping Tearful eyes meet mine and abruptly turn away My heart feels strange My mind opens wide It’s too much An energy source that is made of fear I close my eyes and lift … Read More Reign Over Fear

Words & Deeds

They are like a stream that flows One plus one equals two Words add up when they are so many Without thought we plunge into them Struck by a feeling We must respond But instead we so often react No thought before the river flows Words build and tear down They change the landscape Relationships built and destroyed by them Calculated and spontaneous Struck … Read More Words & Deeds

Choose Wisely

An artist tries to create The expression that will help others see The message from the heart To the world To make the change To make things better To heal or to inspire To express shock Or even disdain But wanting to be heard And known and seen “I AM HERE” Especially now When the quakes of earth Split the ground between us No … Read More Choose Wisely

The Struggle For Peace

It’s an uphill battle Trying to build the bridge Between our thoughts You see it your way I see it mine But it’s all about taking a walk Come over here I’ll come over there Want to see what you see From where you stand Will you please take a look From where I sit Beliefs are built on experience Please let’s not hold … Read More The Struggle For Peace

To the Peacemaker in the Family

‘Dedicated to Bobby S’ You oftentimes are the youngest child Therefore in a larger family No one really listens to your point of view You watch and you listen as the years unfold All that goes on in front of you You try to fill in the gap Since no one asks you to lead the way Hard times come And they are in … Read More To the Peacemaker in the Family

Beyond the Noise

I awaken while it is still quiet Something is shifting in my heart Everyday in limbo Watching the have’s and the have not’s They go at it pointing fingers Those with masks staying inside Driving with them on and the windows up Fear has gripped the hearts of many Others have a different approach Breathing the free air they refuse to wear Something that … Read More Beyond the Noise

Find me in the wind

Trying to harness the wind The power within Just as the water rages And the earth endures Cannot count on things to be still Hang it out to dry But then the rain comes So what is one to do When the peace is interrupted By bad news Things never stay the same But try to find Those who can endure The changes as … Read More Find me in the wind

Ebb and Flow

Have you ever sat by the sea Watched the waves come in and go out Sometimes with such force They feel like a threat What is it that holds them back The sea knows when to come in And when to go out I would call it intuition But that’s impossible So what is it that makes it so The moon and sun The … Read More Ebb and Flow

Refinement in Confinement

In this time of confinement We are forced to be released of our normal routines of escape Our addictions, our anxieties appeased Those outlets we regularly used To escape our troubles and our fears Those crutches we thought we needed forever Have been broken We left home to relieve our stresses Turmoil and pain Of jobs and marriage troubles Of loneliness and self doubt … Read More Refinement in Confinement

Comfort Yourself

  Creating something Is the best way to find yourself It challenges you to push past your self doubt If you don’t give up If you push through the frustration You will be given an opportunity To find your inner beauty So even if you are not an artist Do something artistic It will force you to grow And you may discover That right … Read More Comfort Yourself

It’s Time

    I look up and I see her Her hair is moving with the soft wind as she glides Upon the path beside the ocean Where the rocks meet the crashing waves It is a still and beautiful morning With every step she takes Her shoulders are straighter Finally taking care of herself In ways she could not find to do before Her … Read More It’s Time
