The Journey

The Journey

The Journey
You may find exhilarating storms of hope
placid lakes of indifference
and rushing streams of joy
still throughout your intrepid journey
the constant thread stitches all
together in the heart

New Habits

As you embark
on the journey
of new habit
May the road
of intentions
prove smooth and joyous
I yearn
like the heart
of Great Spirit yearns
for Joy…

The Journey

Kind of pretty on the outside
light poking through crevices
Showing off the sparkly parts
more subdued on the inside
Words like clouds and picket fence
challenges and expanding hearts
come to mind
Clothing hitched up to cross the stream
time to get toes dirty in the mud
Breezes flapping hair and cloth
heart intrepid in the face of fear

Best friends side by side sometimes
and off on our own side path
at other times
discovering myriad nooks and crannies
as we keep going forward

Begin the journey once again
midstream at the start
Who knows where
at the end…

Today we celebrate our journey midstream. It’s our 10 year anniversary!


The frumpy lady in her nightgown
And cow horns on her head
Inspired strength and fortitude
Upon herself
As if plastering walls
Or shoring up foundations
With the delicacy of a rhino
Self-talk became a blur
Of mantric phrases gone senseless
Beginning with “You will”
And the ever present “You are”
Until cooked together for hours
Into a sticky tar-like substance
Silence, peace, joy, bliss even
Are welcomed here, whenever they arrive

Turtle Medicine

In the face of adversity
Turtle pulled into her shell
into the place of safety
This is not a bad thing
it simply is…
just like turtle’s speed
Later, the same day
that turtle just stood up
on stilty legs
And started walking
on her journey
Alive and alert
to the gentle breeze
upon the face
