A Candle Lit in Prayer


Like wind, colors fill our breath with gratitude.
Infinite in grace and beauty, a candle lit in prayer
answers each moment we live. A light majestic
in power, each breath gives thanks for all. None
are forgotten, if only we remember.

T friends

Textured surfaces, you and I touched each other

Beneath what is understood and not understood

We felt laughter and tears mark time innumerable

Our stubborn hearts refusing measurement

We charted life’s long road; two paths united

Our destiny to know truth in each other

Secrets of lasting friendship our reward

Wheels spin round and round

In man alone the answer never found

Only with God’s love in each heart

Here on earth will peace start

To show woman and man

Peace on earth is our role

To one day travel to heaven

In action, let this be our daily goal

Winter Sun

DongYang Winter Sun

Bright winter sun shined

Warming thirsting child below

River ice melted

Open Window

prayer flags

“Let there be many windows to your soul, that all the glory of the world may beautify it.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Soul of my soul

My heart an open window

I am the fulfillment of freedom’s breeze

Fragrant in pure essence of life

Aware of impermanence

I wrap today in future presents

Gifted by my own hand to worthy recipients

without discrimination

or expectation of return

I return

To the soul of my soul

An open window

A breeze I share

with all beings

A prayer

For all elements

To blend in harmony

Creation Myth Wojtek Siudmak 1942

Wrinkles warp distance
Measurements of time and space
Face of the mountain

My Dear Brother 

If I could give you one gift aside from my love, I would give you a sledgehammer to shatter the taunting voice of the Carnie in your head egging you on, calling you to “step right up,” “test your strength,” “show the world who’s the strongest man;”

Because maybe your strength is in a softer side of you releasing yourself to simply be you.  And realizing it’s ok to define yourself; to be whatever your truth is at any given moment.

You are not one of Pavlov’s dogs responding to a loud bell ringing pre-conditioned expectations.

I’ve seen you at the heights of success and the lows of exceptionally challenging times.

I’ve seen you cry in tender moments and show resilience in the face of adversity.

My Dear Brother

Never forget to be you.

You are a heart, mind, body and soul capable of realizing your greatest potential energy in the here and now.

You are human.  You are a real man.

This, without measure, is your greatest strength.

Raise your chin skyward

Open your dreams from within

Embrace who you are

butterfly with books
Airborn mid-sea, steady is she
Sixteen, easterly upbeat
Speedily she flees
Evading shoestring
bound stories

Northland bookends
Meredith reaches reality
a Cyprus butterfly inflight
