Winds of Homecoming

Ah, not to be cut off,
not through the slightest partition
shut out from the law of the stars.
The inner — what is it?
if not the intensified sky,
hurled through with birds and deep
with the winds of homecoming.

– Rainer Maria Rilke

The place is here

IMG_7972It’s hard to remember that this day will never come again. That the time is now and the place is here and that there are no second chances at a single moment. ― Jeanette Winterson

Born to Fly


This one is for you, Sharalyn. Happy Birthday, my love. It is a joy watching you fly.

Hello, Sun


hello morning

Hello, sun in my face. Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness. -Mary Oliver


You too have come

The Creation

Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,
“and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine.”

– Mary Oliver
