Reason to Ask

Reason to Ask ~~~~~ Let us sit down quietly, gathered all together. Let us speak what’s vital, wind and weather. Listen, the trees that shade us, are our home. Bless beings we eat, wear, the grass and loam. Sit peacefully, talking rarely, in gentle voices, opening our true being to embrace all choices. Acknowledge our […]

I Will Wait

I Will Wait ~~~~~ I sense I am on the verge, terra incognito. Vast, unlimited potential, possibility, still unknown, glowing, the aura of discovery.
