February 2012 – in a special way

Yes, God has blessed you in a special way.
The Creator is revealed through the things of life.

Bridge across the sky
Shrouded foggy mystery
Dear companion

Hazy blue winter
Cold air and wind in my face
Invigorate life
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 02/03/12

An owl was calling
On a star filled winter night
Not my name, a call
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 02/03/12

A call echoed crisp
To live in light and darkness
As if the last day
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 02/03/12

Luminous silence
Dampens the cacophony of
Ordinary days
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 02/15/12

Without a winter
The stars cannot shift across
Another night sky
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 02/17/12

The flowers push through
Never a frozen hard ground
Led at such ease
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 02/17/12

Pink and gray and blue
Over the rim of the earth
The transition hour

Orange cusp of sun
Obscured among scattered clouds
Brings the light of dawn

St. Rose Church and tree
No body is no body
Thus we are all only spirit
As body does not limit
And mind achieves a balance
Of no concern
Because there is no body
Only eternal ever growing
Spirit in a soul
Each soul moving toward
External bliss
By simple coexistence
With the almighty
Ever lasting
creation

I was always an optimist
seeing the hopeful side of things.
As a young child I was the optimistic helper and pleaser.
Then I became the lucky optimist – fortunately sliding through the teen years.
The naïve optimist worked for years
thinking I understood change
and could change people and systems.
Moving through time the realistic optimist realized
there were limits to one person’s ability to move the Whole forward.
The optimistic fatalist emerged
to graciously accept what the fates bestowed.
What kind of optimist will I be next?
The optimist of the light?

Gotta make it in
Under the invisible
wire of time today

I can only say
All I can think of is you.
Our love overwhelms

You are always so
Awesome, brave and beautiful
Oh my beloved one

It is bittersweet
Grandeur to reside in the
Temple of our love

Happy to be here
In a manner of speaking
Just being with you

Happy to be here
In a manner of speaking
