winds of change

photo and poetry invitation found at abbey of the arts:

winds of change where do you begin?
is it a whisper in our ear or
the roar of a God whose belly fills deep
upon the ocean?

stars of the beach

Oh, stars, and dreams, and gentle night;
Oh, night and stars, return!

miracles and magic

another shade of blue

if I were to pick a color today to inhale beauty and exhale gratitude, it would be the color blue. blue sky. blue sea. all surrounding me. gratitude for heaven and earth. sun and sea. family and friends. Lord, I am ever grateful for this blessed life.

is it of my own making? or is it orchestrated outside of me? the universe in charge? I think. I ponder. it is up to me to decide what I bring to it. joy and gratitude are well-received. I could complain. be angry and resentful. “blue”, if you will, but these are not choices I want to bring to the world.

inhale beauty. exhale gratitude.
