Hide and Seek with the Morning Sun

Hide and seek with the morning sun as we emerge form a deep freeze in MN.

Poem – Transitions

Through our normal daily lives, time consistently pushes us forward toward goals and moments we may or may not be aware of.

Poem – Empty Fields

When this life’s pace and chaos become too much I know where I can turn. I return to my roots, I return to the empty fields. Here is a clean slate waiting for the mind to create. They offer possibilities, an endless space to chase and capture dreams. This is where the mind can exist […]
