Astonished, are we…

Why is awe so hard to encounter?

Miraculous gifts are showered upon us.

Instead we stoke anger, hatred, and revenge.

We should welcome joy and beauty.

At times the dreadfulness shows us to the path of goodness.

It should not take a lifetime to wonder over our rewards.


Me time

On the ritual of morning runs

The noises of nature are notable

Bird songs beckon me

Whispering winds chill my ears

My favorite

The tantrum of rushing spring

Through overflowing rivulets announcing winter’s end

My short, daily solitude can be accompanied by nature once again.
