Roots and Wings

distant-light

Storms with thunder roll
across the land
Lives are trees uprooted
by the winds of change
Emotions tolling like bells

Far distant steeples
fall silent in the rain
As the water pools
Running in the streets
Streaming through our lives

Going home again
Faded memories waiting
Behind doors unopened
Through decades only dreams
walked these halls

How can I speak to friend
of the sense and the feelings
How the living and the dead
Reach up in bird songs
under the canopies of green

Stillness echoes from the hills
Honeysuckle blossoms on the breeze
Breakfast baking in the kitchen
Time cannot steal you away
Home lives forever in the heart

New Moon Rising

1d192a3b23e12115dbbde5d424275ec3

Flowers in the sun
as the new moon rises
unnoticed

Earth
rich soft brown soil
revolving
footsteps flow
with feelings

Were are they bound
as if
some destiny
cannot wait

For the
glaciers
to recede
in the warm wind 
and the oceans
again
fill with love
