Depths of Spirit

I met a very old woman
on the road
Inching along in
a bent and stilted way
I offered my arm
as she headed off
across the trafficked street
And fell into the depths
of Spirit-connect in her eyes

An Old Friend

An old friend from long ago
you just showed up on my doorstep

With a smile and a hug
and all the spunk and verve
you always had

As it it were just yesterday
that I saw you last

My heart didn’t know the difference
though my eyes perceived the truth
of a lifetime spent living fully
a vibrant spirit expressing

Welcome back into my life, friend…
