Dance in the Light


DSC09301-2

Hold Still
Stand in silence
Listen to the musical notes
As the first rays
Of the sun
Touch the sky
Unfolds a day
As the night’s dew
Descends to the ground

P1010917

Light dances
In color and shadow
With each moment
Until it fades
Beyond the horizon

DSC01103

Night skies
Star light
Light from beyond time
Beyond our imagination
All notes of a symphony

DSC05795a

Not to orchestrate
Just to listen

Negative Light Rays

Move softly
With all that is around
Of day or night
To dance in the light

Footprints


DSC04648

Step lightly
To do as little harm
As we step forward
In a world teeming with life

DSC04690

Time and the forces of nature
May erase some of our former steps
But there are more than 7 billion of us

DSC07990
Ever stepping forward
Ever the desire
Ever the need for more

DSC07988c

Our footprints become heavier
As we mar the ground beneath our feet
Ever harming more living things
Those that are not us

DSC01632-2

The steps of the past are still there
If we look behind

DSC01565ab
It is to our next steps
To our children, and to theirs’
To learn
To teach

P1030182
To step lightly
And do as little harm
In a world teeming with life
For it shouldn’t be only about us

Kicking Leaves Again


DSC06498
The trees are bare
Yet no trace of a season remains
Raked and bagged, it is no more

DSC08279
Except in my little plot of this earth
Where the leaves still swirl
Lifted by the November gales

IMG_0932
The energy spend of a summer season
Will remain, food for the life in the soil

Statue

It will again
Be the the green of our next growing season

DSC08279
For now I will be out kicking leaves
Until the snows of winter
Blankets the fall and prepares for a coming spring

To Unlearn


DSC07620

A life time of learning
Still trying to form an opinion

DSC07959

A finite grasping at infinity

DSC06712

In awe of those
Who know it all
Before they have matured

P8270038
Yet time has come
For me
To unlearn

061 (4)

So maybe one day
With a heart and mind of a child
I will see the wonders of everyday
