Still


Thoughts on Christmas morning.

Inspired by Walking

Cape Lookout Hike Aug 15 2012 036

still

darkness stands silent
anticipating another dawn
as winter’s mist
blankets all creation

I breath in
the mystery
the beauty
the hope
of what’s to come

who knows what the new day brings
but I stand
palms open
ready to receive
this unearned gift

Autumn’s Breath


Image

A crisp oak leaf rests gently,

as if sleeping

among the tiny, ruddy-leaved limbs of the azalea bush.

Held,

as though the tenderest of souls

in God’s creation.

Cared for

by the learned limbs

who know that they, too, shall soon surrender their ruby garments

to autumn’s breath.
