opening my wings


my wings lift from their sides
the air beneath them lift me
onto the stairway to heaven
for i’ve come to this journey’s end

loved in depths where my heart, before, didn’t know
drank the tears of sadness until full
the howling wolf’s soul and me sit side by side
and watch his home burn to the ground

having heard the voices of despair
the asking for an open hand  
the flow of tears for someone to care
and deaf ears to listen if they dare

as i rise up and soar away from the mire on earth
i here the triumphant sound of wind,
the ocean waves clap and the mountains
whisper, the osprey and lion sing and roar to life

i do not say goodbye nor wish to see you cry,
would like to tell you why, it’s time for me
to fly where the universal spirit resides
along where all our souls soon will meet
giving the color blue to the palette of the sky

a dream


a dream  renders in joyful moments
some from memory, some surreal
 
eyes open and all seems the same
waft of the day is much like yesterday

body rises, stretches from its resting place
muscle ache, folds, wrinkles, a time lapse face

the day is grey, the autumn breeze is cold
hold the hand of love now and of the old

walk this day with me , breathe deep
pick not a flower, leave for the sun to grow

let the humming bird sip of its nectar
let bloom with color for the eyes to keep

the eyes of the soul


behold what lies within
the eyes of the soul
that visualize a world
of beauty and love but also
witnesses to and of it's absence 

this is within all our reach
we can grasp it if we
extend our hand, take hold
and embrace these riches

when we consume love,
when we embrace beauty
we become such and
of this end, so too,
will our progeny

tell a man this not to be true
and they will prove you wrong
for they will go forth and
reject the disdain in destiny
which shall change the universe
