There I Am

Rising Fiddle Head ~ Photo by Patrice

There I am in my robe
Watching closely as the earth disrobes
All it’s ugly, nasty things
Rising up in beauty
Filled with summer and with spring.
Winter’s cold, bitter hate
Melted here, no distaste
Only warm, fulfilling beams
Creating more lovely dreams.

Bless the ground I stand upon
Know it gives me faith true and strong
Trusting I’ll be here long after
Spring flowers fade and go
But memories of what has been
Or yet to come
Will hold my own sheltering robe so tight
That I know I will be safe
On earth’s soft ground tonight.

Long Shadows Crease The Grass

Long shadows crease the grass
Modifying bark on a watching tree
As sunlight fights
With the night all day long
Winning only in the morning bright.

Sleep at night
Feel the shadows
Creeping across the grass
Rising up
Holding darkness in it’s grasp.

Your heart is safe
Shadows will see to that.

We Are Slowly Rising Up

March 5, 2013

St. Lucian Mighty Tree ~ photo by PatriceWe are slowly rising up
Taking back what belongs to us
No reproach
Just get it done
Everlasting gratitude has begun.
