Nestling 

The squirrel climbed the tree

Carrying a bundle of grass,

Roots still entact.

Nesting? Gardening??

Looking for a home, or just decorating?

The squirrel descended the tree,

Still carrying the bundle of grass.

.

With all this talk of decluttering our lives,

Maybe we need to de- nest instead

And realize 

The whole world is our home.

Like water

Like water of a duck’s back,

Peace came,

Filled with giggles and joy and otters and mermaids.

Play!

The kitten

Wiggled his bottom

Ready to pounce.

“Not now,”

“I’m in the middle of a blessing.”

Her paws resting gently on the violin case…

“Me too, me too” he said.
However you do it, remember to play everyday.

Thin skinned


The unicorn wallowed in the cool mud,

Finding comfort on a hot day.

Many think they are well shielded, with tough hides and fierce countenance..

But in truth they, like rhinos, have very thin skins…

Thus they need protecting…..as do unicorns, and us.

Questions 

One days where I seem more full of questions than answers,

I look up

And find I am not alone.

Early morning flights

 

In the early morning,

I looked up to pray

& find myself watching flight paths…

Creatures of the night

Are also creatures of the dawn.

We fly where we are needed and fed.

Peace

   

Sometimes it is hard to meet on common ground.

Try anyway.
