Layers

I peel away

the layers of life,

reveal

it’s fading history…

the love

the loss

the mystery,

remembered…

 

here

within

this moment’s

space…

 

I am

surrendered.

Them

She wondered…

 

would the merging

of all our love…

 

stem

the hatred 

created

by

them…

 

the fear

and greed

that bleeds the souls

of

all of us…

 

thus…

outweighed?

A Ripple

All this

seems so important

 

so amplified

and magnified by

our

converse

smallness…

 

though…

 

within

the universe…

 

it’s

just

a tiny 

ripple

of change…

Greatness

When oceans part

and stars align,

we  hesitate….

 

for even though

we know

our way

is clear…

 

we fear

our greatness.

Seeds

Maybe

I have always known…

 

the seeds of love

now fully grown,

would remind me

of all that’s lost

and tossed

aside…


in the living

of life…


and giving 

away

of

our truth.
