Calling To Me Dear

When I want to visit God, I go to the Grand Canyon Where she talks to me plainly and talks to me clear Staring at eternity I look into her depths As she calls to me familiar —and calls to me dear (Grand Canyon South Rim: February, 2019)

Welcoming arms

If you look closely you can see the pain in her eyes her beautiful smile can't hide.. She's badly broken but exudes love none the less. I tried desperately to reach her even extended my welcoming hand...she was untrusting so I couldn't get close.....

It's ok

So much do the tables turn like the hands of a clock do you hear the tick tock.once it stops life ..the moments left there after gasping clutch for one more touch..although your eyes do fill let it be in your heart you do feel..in order for you to...

In the depth of her deepest silence a voice spoke and awakened me..I had to try..no I had to do what I was called to do..could not let my enemy win and that be my end..so I rise to my feet dust myself off and begin to speak..faint and shallow ..cl...

Step By Step

With each step that I take, words jostle and form Inside me they cluster deep down where it’s warm At nighttime they visit in moments of peace Defining my feelings —extending my reach (Las Vegas Nevada: January, 2019)

Deep in the canyon with the grace of your souls carrying your memory inside me Visiting places where we spent time before seeing each one of your faces Hearing your voices whispering inside reminding of what we knew then Sealing a vision ...
