Poem – Emerging from the Depths with Stardust

The blood-red sky of time before the sun rises intermingled with black clouds, the air is cold and still.

Surviving

Slow down, stop, look to the sky. With eyes closed, take in nature, exhale burdens, worries, and angst. If only for that moment.

After snowstorm stopped, outside in the front-yard, the […]

Imagination Turning to the Sky

Returning from Alaska

Returning from an Alaskan retreat, I am different. Nothing earth shattering and most likely not noticeable to most people I come into contact with. Back home, the sky has not changed, the trees stand tall against the summer blue, and the grass is coarse from overdue rain. Obligations, bills, demands, job – waited at the […]
