As you take the journey home,

May there be a light

To guide you.

As you take the journey home,

May all that’s necessary

Be with you.

As you take one step

After another,

May the energies

Sustain you.

And when you finally

Reach home,

May loving arms and hearts

Embrace you.

Revisiting Tranquility

As cooler days strip the grass

Into brown freezer spots,

Recall days of lush summer

Full of green sunny lots.

Take a breath

Of warm memory,

Hold the story

It told.

It will return

When the weather,

Meanders back from

The cold.

Spin a wheel to the field

Turn the earth, pull the weeds

Plow a line, plant a seed

Rumble on through sun and wind

Powered by many steeds.

Beached Hopes

In the soft curl of foam

In the rush of cool waves

She will beach

She will trench

And will lay

Out her hopes

That a future

Will come.

Down the mountain

She drives

As fields await wheat

To arrive.

Down the mountain

She strives

Arrow straight

To a new life.

Behind Closed Doors

Decades shut

Behind closed shores

What old stories

Had you told

Of not so distant

Wars?

Weathered by

Time and lore

What future resides

Behind Cuba’s

Sealed doors?

Jagged Masterpiece

A rocky castle in the sky

The waters

A cold

Aqua fuzz

And stony shark fins

In disguise.

A masterpiece

Sculpted by ice.
