Soul Soothing

In the silence of pre-dawn

Or the hush before the sunset

May your soul be soothed to know

Full widths of hope

Soft waves of deepest palette.

Relocate

Let your mind

Pull up stakes

From its old

Dusty space.

Let your heart

Relocate

To a wider

Warm place.

Open eyes

To new shores.

Plant ideas

Expand more.

Knit the yarn

Click and purl

Weave and braid

Loop and curl

Blanket beds

Shelter heads

From the cold

Up ahead.

Heart Percussion

May the percussion of your heart

Beat not staccato in your core

But breathe legato in your soul

To sing vibrato to your whole.

Have Mercy

Have mercy

For those who have not

For those who don’t know how

And weren’t taught.

Have mercy

For your own lost corners

Where the words of others

Might’ve carved a hole

That is yet to get darned

And still exacts a toll.

Have mercy

For your

Need to hope

You’d make your

Spirit

Whole.

Take a break from the city

From the din

From the crowds.

Walk yourself into quiet

Find a park

Riverside.

Turn the clamor to low

Let your breath

Ebb and flow.
