April 2012 – Life and the events It is both more and less than it appears to be.

Flowers in March 2012
About to burst out
Rain nor wind inhibit it
Potential beauty
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 04/01/12

Giants stand tall
Shrouded in the morning fog
Soon the sun will shine.

Swift the river flows
Swollen by the falling rain
Stained brown by the earth

Women making plans
The bond between them grows strong
Sisters standing tall

Those are lovely
The wilderness suits you well
with modern comfort.

There he goes again
another exuberant
life adventurer

Paulin Creek after a rain-4
“So many poems happen at the intersection of time and eternity”

The God in you is
The God you alone let through.
To shine on the world
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 04/16/12

When we have doubt it
Paralyzes certainty
Life is uncertain.
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 04/18/12

Life’s vicissitudes
Opportunity for choice
Learn to love cactus
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 04/20/12

Graffiti on wall
Real or just an illusion
Like your city life?

“Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.”

“Through compassion our humanity grows into its fullness.”

Nouwen-McNeill-Morrison in Compassion

Tulips are fading
In the early summer heat
Yellowed Spring flowers

Tulips have faded
What can replace them today
Besides memory

Tulips can return
Nurtured with love from the past
New color and joy found

Flowers in March 2012 - rain drops
Behind closed eyelids
An orange like no other
In springtime sunshine

Life and the events
It is both more and less than
it appears to be.
