Connecting with spring…

may the sun bring you new energy by day.

may the moon softly restore you by night.

may the rain wash away your worries.

may the breeze blow new strength into your being.

may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.   -apache blessing-

Free Verse: What’s Nest?

Gathered with purpose
Constructed with instinct and anticipation
Aptness renders a work of art
Situated from elements and harm
An air of expectancy hovers
And then she takes her place

Free Verse: Mother’s Image

Needy nest cries for her care and attention
Watching her wings that leave, hearing her rustling returns
Dependent nestlings instinctively eye her every move
About to fledge, chicks feel her warmth as she nestles close
Have demanded her food and protection
Time to leave her and their cradle
Off they fly with mother’s image
