The sun arrives,
poking through tall trees as steam rises from river and sky turns pale
Slowly and surely
precious life all around stirs anew for another day
What can one do
emerging from darkness but align with this light of hope? … Continue reading
I see two trees
swaying in the wind
drift together, sometimes apart
Seemingly at mercy
of the wind of life all around … Continue reading
