Standing on a Hill
A Sunny Spring Morning After
A Nighttime Rainfall

To the Horizon
All is Blue and Green and Light
Clear Edges, New Growth

Drawn in Memory
In History Yet to Be
With Hope and Longing

The First Day of Spring
Rain Softens the Horizon
Earth Breathes Quietly

As if Opposites
Attract, Nature Paints in Contrasts
Pulling in Our Gaze

Freeze and Flow from Spring
To Fall, Summer and Winter,
The Rolling Seasons

The Light and Shadow
Of Every Passing Moment
Still Life in Motion

And We Cannot Look
Away, As One Thing Becomes
Another and Returns

Rock and Water, Earth
And Air, Nature Sings Harmony
And we are Transformed

Through Storms’ End, Deep Snow,
To A Warm Spring That Runs Clear
All Through the Winter

A Quacking, Flapping
Urgency of Ducks rises, flees.
The Red-Tailed Hawk StaysHe Makes Eye Contact

A Glance Over His Shoulder
Tail Feathers ShakenHe Raises His Wings
As If Stretching and Rises,
Floating Into Air

Effortless, He Glides
By, Holding My Eye, Watching
Silent, Moving, Still

One Circle, Then Two
I am appraised. He is not
Afraid or Impressed

So He Turns His Head
And Slides Away, Mystery
Above the Deep Snow

Deep Snow, Breaking Trail,
Snowshoes and Poles Creak Like The
Calls of Sandhill Cranes

All Our History
Is Shared. Each of Us Wants It
Unique, Ours Alone

We turn to Glory
And Away from Blood Until
We are Overwhelmed

Taken by the Chaos
Of Forgotten Memory
And We Cannot Breathe

As That Memory
Weaves our Shared Tapestry More
True than Any Fact

Full of Glory and
Our Bloody Hands, Survived By
Our Forgiving Hearts

Every Garden is
A Story Teller. Be Still
Listen, Watch, Be Blessed

Remembering Kent State

Now Fifty Years On
We Still Argue in Guns and
Violence and Hatred

Will We Never Learn
To Answer With Something More,
Different, Beautiful?

Trade Violence For Calm, EBA44E1D-6C98-44AA-B668-022BCC530B2C
Hear Hatred With Love, Guns with
More than Blood and Breath

A New Kind of World,
Not One Gone All Blind In a
Furious Eye for Eye

Salvation Is Ours,
Found Only With Gentle Hands
Open Hearts, and Time

After the Harvest
Trees and Sunrise Stripe Bare Fields
Like Bengal Tigers

At Thirty Below
The Landscape Distills Color
And Light to Still Life
