White Birds Escape

A flock of white birds escapes
from within
where they once flew
in the vast sky of imagination
and made airwaves in
heart and body
moving invisibly between
one lover and the other
And now they are set free
into the light
seen, heard and sensed
by the world
to bring hope, to bring love
to bring peace


Focus On Love

I could focus on the clouds,
the heavy rainfall,
the lightning that tries
to strike me
the mountains that seem to arise
barking dogs that attack
the leaves in the wind
that leave behind empty trees
flowers that look dead
But instead, I focus on the everlasting,
free shining sun within the heart
I focus on love



No matter how far two shores
lie from each other
How vast the ocean
How many miles the sky above
How great the distance between
two continents, two bodies
How far time has gone
How far thoughts wander,
how often feelings get lost
Love is the unbreakable bridge
that connects us
and brings us home


So What

And when my ego says:
what if
love was never meant for me
what if
shooting stars
won’t take my wishes
up into the heavens
but will let them drift
forever lost in space
what if?

Then I answer:
So what
I’m safe, I’m grateful,
I love and am loved
I feel, I know
as I look up and read
what’s written in the stars
and see you, see my destiny
and all the things the universe
wishes for me


The Stars Seem So Far

Lying on my bed I watch
the dark night through
the open skylight
The thought of you
accompanies me

And the stars seem so far tonight
My love, where are you
Miles of clouds drift between us,
cover up and hide

But clouds can disappear
in an instant
When clear sight is found in the heart
where stars are always known
to be there
You, I cannot unsee,
cannot unfeel

What is invisible to the eye
requires inner knowing
and faith


In His Embrace Always

When her heart grieves
so deep
all she longs for is
his arms to hold her
but they are an ocean apart

So instead, he tells her
to look at the sky above
the earth below
to sense the wind on her skin
to see the trees sway
clouds move
the stars appear
and to feel that everything
around her is his embrace
