circles of love

“Fragile” – Assateague State Park, MD – photo by gfs

lost in flight
some storm tossed bird
finding reasons
to return to
the air
how to hold on
to the unseen
feels the ether
guides on the wind
one sacred place
still to call home
folding her wings
in the night
waiting again to lift
what remains
of forever finding love

Somewhere in time

Dreamlit tree

Kindness held
the hand of love
Feeling
Far from home
Wandered
The way
Of the heart
and knew
Its time
and place
had come

As wind
through palms
on tropic shores
Or windswept icy
crystal gales
Thinking made from
long before
The sun rose
in our eyes

In lessons life
will fill our days
In nights
here aching
tears might rain
To let us know
The living proof
Brought to light
Where love
Has been set free

There is
no choice
We cannot make
Nor any lost
in Time
Each a blessing
Stills the heart
As truth
within her eyes
