dreams in the night - beginning

telling the truth to ourselves
heard within the chambers of our own hearts
lying to ourselves
waiting for the truth is in the words of another

sun's chains

the sun runs
his journey across
the earth is
his work

creatures of
his love
his name

he reigns
his chains
the weary
are blest

endless prayer
and praises
voices rise
every morning

when hearts are

when hearts are
at home
in a place
then when away
a disconnect comes

when hearts are
at home
in a heart
then when away
the connection grows

where hearts are
it matters
place or a heart
determines if
they remain close

ink trails

pen in hand
shoes on
the floor
feet bare breathe
surroundings fade
in and out
impressions bleed
onto the paper

pen in bag
shoes slip on
eager feet
ready to walk
into the sun
blue ink trails
indelibly left in
sands of the heart

30 days
you can change
just waiting
close to the house
Necessity is the mother of invention.

from the sky - completed

worth giving by
the beauty it is
life to others
man and creature

jj - march 2008 :)

from the sky - continued

dew of the morning
lifting to clear vision
buds lift petals open
life free to express
to be touched by
rays and warmth

from the sky

unfolding as the early
morning sun rises
and warms all
it touches
coaxing life to
open it's eyes

first morning decision

i find myself awake
how i do not know
the jingle alarm has
not yet played
this day i rest longer
through the music
my first decision repeated
i stay imobile then
UP! walk think feel
the rest of this day
is changed by the
spirit of that decision

letting sad ones go

sad stories hang on
in costume and mask
moving through our to-days
with the ease of
a gentle breeze but
leaving broken reeds
they trample until
unmasked in the eyes
of a faithful friend
sad stories hang
naked in space wafting
away leaving life

within and between

darkness falls as gentle hands rest
round colourful china as leaves
steep in the bubbling water
warmth rises as eyes smile
drawing breath into the heart
quiet within and between

today's loss

lost days with one day
losts days from days gone by
brought into today
adding today's loss to tomorrow
