Dark mornings

In the morning I play with words

Await the birds song

When sunrise comes along

The arrival of love I long

They nest as I rest as well

Buddhist bell singing bowl

Universe please bring me more

Days like this; I await my bliss

Kiss the Moon Stars and Sky

To this midnight I thank

N say my goodbye

I’m here


It’s the morning again; my favorite time to write poetry

My wife lay asleep across the room on our bed

Although things have been hard, I am optimistic

I’ve shown myself a better path, so my walk is easier

At least in the now; that fact remains

I have to continue to be mindful of the future

And live present in each moment; one after the next

I take a deep breath and ground myself; I’m alive

I remember an anxious moment yesterday

And knowing that to live is to suffer

But that thought passed; as all thoughts and moments do

I close my eyes; to simply shut them. 

Makes me calm. Collected. Present.

And I take another breath.

Where I’m going doesn’t matter; now is time

I can build towards anything; but nothing is promised

So I do not attach myself with the future

I shall cut my ties with worry and sorrow

In this pitch black sky; I am here

Abide.

Protected by my mother; and my mothers mother

Under the ravens great wings; I abide

Loving all of mother earths children

Her animals and her trees and her streams

Our towered buildings overlook the twin peaks

In this great turtle island is so much beauty

I basque and appreciate the rainfalls

So thankful for the sky

For this sunshine and this stormy night

Looking into the sky; universal in my eyes

And under the raven wings I will fly.
