Blue Sky, Gray Ocean, Sunlight Halo

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment

                       Sky Water ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

Driving down the California coast,
A day overcast in shadowed gloom.

Crisp, windy, made for a brisk walk.
A hole in the clouds opens, circular,

Reminds me of blue sky, other days.
Time, not better, yet a form of magic.

Light limns moisture, a sunlit circle,
Shoots a dart into my heart, my soul.

Opening closes to the wind’s breath.
Brilliance snuffed, yet not forgotten.

My day moves to a different tempo,
Gliding upon another ocean in time.

It’s fueled from another plane, rich,
Full of love, hope, and forgiveness.

Which teach me, I need no remorse,
No forgiveness for myself, for being

Who I am, who I should be, become
Unless I give gray skies, stormy seas

Power to swamp me, drag me under,
Realms, deeply dark and smothering,

Where I only feel and give great pain.
Meanness and hatred wantonly hurled,

Shattering blasts like Thor’s hammer.
Thunderbolts sent to damn, devastate

Those around me who deserve it least.
Targets near, not found going upward

Or deeper into the source of all light
And all darkness, balancing creation.
