If anything matters then everything matters. – Wm Paul Young
Should never be offered to the mouth of a stranger,
Only to someone who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.
Stay close to any sounds that make you glad you are alive.
Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you.
I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in the darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.
There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that
Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I would like to see you living in better conditions.
Even after all this time the sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me”
There is no pleasure without a tincture of bitterness.
for what I am to receive

none of them right.
My back to the Sound,
Waves coming and going,
Sand shifting under my wet feet.

a black glob of rocks stuck together
browns and grey and bits of reds

I want it to be romantic.
I search for romance…
Could it be a meteorite?
a mystery from another planet?
I walk the mile home,
wondering what lessons I will learn from this ‘gift’
I have just received from the ocean.
one more curve,
I spot my favorite kinda caterpillar,
the brown and black,
softest, loveliest velvet
crawler in the world.
I loved the feel of them as a little girl,
let them crawl all over me.
I pass it,
then double back,
as directed by intuition,
to visit this small friend.
I am bent down,
as my fuzzy friend moves along,
and recognition comes.
in my hands….
a piece of the road,
which came to me by way of the ocean.
I belly laugh
as I my lesson,
in the ocean of grace
no matter where I am
the path is in the ocean of love,
This road is everywhere!
It rises to meet me,
no matter where I stand!
I comes one small glimpse at a time.
This is gift –
teaching me what I need,
bringing me diamonds with each step.
is the best gift.
We are always loved
The message is waiting in
every heart beat,
every tiny created thing,
every little moment,
breathes and burns.
Remove your shoes.
Dive into the sky!
holy, holy, holy!
then fly away
I’ll meet you there!
