May 1, 2017 – #poem 

So much to say

So much Silence in between

Solitude is my constant companion






Balance in all things


Letting thoughts and breath

run out and back


Sun on skin

Joy-filled hoot from behind

that hedge


Mating calls of this bird and that


Distant roar of plane pushing into

brilliant blue of this afternoon’s air


One mourning dove lowing

soft and close






Thank You for this life

This one I’m living at this moment…

…this moment   …this moment


Each of us is in service to someone or



Who do you serve?


…this moment

…this moment

…only this moment.
