Oh, Child

A

Oh, Child

Oh, Child,

How you hold your form.

Soul of infant stars

Ready to go nova.

Bud of tree

Rooting in familiar soil

Infusing wisdom.

Hatchling of hope,

Fledging of wing,

Seeking flight to All.

Leaf, spring green,

Uncurling for air

With perfect fingers.

Pure soul,

Chaste stream,

How you feed life,

How you inspire love.

May you breathe in Light.

May you be Light.

Coons

Coons

To share with a coon

can cause others to curse you

and nature to smile

In silence so long

ivy caught my heart

and climbed my soul

New Audio: The Dark

 

We fear the darkness

though it holds a mystery

It’s our constant friend

 

For where there is night

there is light beckoning us

out of the obscure
